Cancel the Hebron Fund”s dinner at Citi Field
WHEN: Wednesday Nov 18, 12:30 – 1:30 PM
WHERE: The office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball

The Brooklyn-based Hebron Fund supports violent, racist Israeli settlers in Israeli-occupied Hebron who are taking over Hebron”s Old City in violation of international law, and driving out the Palestinian residents. The New York Mets are aiding the Hebron Fund”s activities by allowing the organization to hold a fundraiser at Citi Field on November 21st, despite a November 3 letter calling for the event to be cancelled. The fundraiser will be held above the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, an insult to Robinson”s legacy.
Join us on Wednesday to tell Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to Cancel the Event!
Write to the Mets demanding that they cancel the dinner!
Protest organized by: Adalah-NY, CODEPINK Women for Peace, Jews Against the Occupation-NYC, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Jews Say No!, and Jewish Voice for Peace
