Demonstration Outside the Department of Justice

On May 23, Move Over AIPAC marched on the Justice Department with new information about why AIPAC should register under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Individuals presented their own personalized letters for regulation at the main entrance. Heather Hunt, head of the Foreign Agents Registration Act unit at the Justice Department, invited this new input on the possible registration of AIPAC as a foreign agent in a May 18, 2011 letter which was read out loud during the action.

Spoof AIPAC Gala Program

To the surprise of many AIPAC participants to the Monday night Gala, they were handed a glossy update to the evening’s program with Bibi Netanyahu and US speakers. The light-hearted spoof included the musical revue “We Arm the World” by Israel’s vaudeville troupe The Dazzling Cluster Bomblets, a talk by Congressman Eric Cantor on how to best play the anti-semitism card, a Netanyahu keynote entitled “We’re Right and Every Other Country in the World is Wrong (except the U.S., Micronesia and Palau) and workshops such as How to Make Victims Look Like Aggressors: Lessons from the Mavi Marmara. Light-hearted but oh so true. We hope that it provoked some reflection from a few of the AIPAC revelers.
