Friday, June 16 at 7 PM – “Boycott” (2021)

Boycott explores anti-BDS laws and related freedom of speech issues[1] through the stories of a publisher, an attorney, and a pediatric speech pathologist. The three Americans filed lawsuits against their state governments in response to the laws’ effects on their respective livelihoods when said governments canceled their business contracts after they refused to pledge that they would not engage in a boycott of Israel.

LEPOCO has a beautiful new t-shirt for sale, designed by Amanda Zaniesienko, featuring a sunflower surrounding the LEPOCO doves logo.  (The sunflower has become the symbol of a world free of nuclear weapons.  This came about after an extraordinary celebration of Ukraine achieving the status of a nuclear free state in the 1990s.)

LEPOCO’s statement on Ukraine

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia must be stopped.  The Lehigh-Pocono Committee of Concern (LEPOCO) envisions a world free from war, violence, and injustice.  To that end, we oppose all wars.

We are alarmed about the war in Ukraine – the brazenness of the Russian invasion, the mounting killings of civilians of all ages, the destruction of homes, schools, human infrastructure, the threats about nuclear weapons and nuclear power. 

Negotiations leading to a ceasefire must be the priority of the United Nations, our government, and all who oppose the assault on Ukraine. 

We urge the federal government to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Ukraine, those who are continuing to live in their homeland and those who have been forced to flee the horrors of war. 

LEPOCO is committed to nonviolent action; we support the people of Russia who brave severe punishment by their public protest of their government’s actions.
