We, members of the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee, are writing to express our deepest condolences to the community of Ferguson. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We recognize that Michael’s murder at the hands of the police is part of a system that routinely punishes, confines, and kills young African American men without justification. The circumstances of Michael’s death have sent shock waves of outrage and anger around the nation and throughout the world, including among the people of Palestine. We also believe that the only path to peace and justice in our world is through combatting racism and the violent institutions that perpetuate it.
We are here to offer any help we can to support your demand for real justice, not only for Michael and his community but for all the young, precious victims of this vicious system.

Israel-trained police "occupy" Missouri after killing of black youth

[NOTE: Former Portland Chief of Police Mark Kroeker went to Israel for "terrorism training" as chief of police in Portland back in 2003: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/pbnotify.cfm?action=ViewContent&content_id=379   Not sure how much special training Portland police or other Oregon police are receiving in Israel today...  Let AUPHR know if you have information about the sending of Oregon police to Israel for "training"  at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Since the killing of eighteen-year-old Michael Brown by Ferguson police in Missouri last weekend, the people of Ferguson have been subjected to a military-style crackdown by a squadron of local police departments dressed like combat soldiers. This has prompted residents to liken the conditions on the ground in Ferguson to the Israeli military occupation of Palestine. 

And who can blame them? 

The dystopian scenes of paramilitary units in camouflage rampaging through the streets of Ferguson, pointing assault rifles at unarmed residents and launching tear gas into people’s front yards from behind armored personnel carriers (APCs), could easily be mistaken for a Tuesday afternoon in the occupied West Bank. 

And it’s no coincidence. 

At least two of the four law enforcement agencies that were deployed in Ferguson up until Thursday evening — the St. Louis County Police Department and the St. Louis Police Department — received training from Israeli security forces in recent years.
