Dual protests

Friday November 17, 2000

Members of the Coalition of Jews for Justice held a sign protesting United States aid to Israel at Bancroft Street and Telegraph Avenue yesterday. The group condemns what they say is “excessive” violence used by Israel in the current Middle East situation. 

At right, a group of pro-Israel demonstrators gathered 100 yards away from the protesters inside the UC Berkeley campus. The group carried signs that said “Pro-Israel, Pro Peace.” One pro-Israel demonstrator said he did not know the other group was present.
