More images from the American demonstrations against Israeli deportations of African refugees

These are some of the demonstrations.

They come from T’ruah – an American based organisation, which describes itself in these terms: “T’ruah brings a rabbinic voice and the power of the Jewish community to protecting and advancing human rights in North America, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories.

We do this by training and mobilizing our network of 1,800 rabbis and cantors, together with their communities, to bring our Jewish values to life through strategic and meaningful action.”

This is how they explain what they did and the organisations that supported their protest.

“Today and tomorrow, rabbis in New York, DC, Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Ottawa, Toronto, and London are delivering a letter, signed by 877 rabbis, to Israeli embassies and consulates asking Israel to cease plans to deport asylum seekers. Brought to you by T’ruah, New Israel Fund, and HIAS. #NeverAgainIsNow”
