Pro-Hamas demonstrations organized using progressive not-for-profit Action Network

They claimed this protest, and the demand for a ceasefire, puts the DSA "on the right side of history."

Pro-Hamas activists with the Democratic Socialists of America are using Action Network to organize their pro-terrorist, anti-Israel rallies in New York. Action Network is also used by the AFL-CIO, the Daily Kos, Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March, and the Democratic National Committee, among others. It has a hand in getting Democrats elected across the US.

The Action Network makes the claim that they "have helped the Women’s March mobilize huge rallies across the globe, helped the DNC raised millions for candidates and organizations, and much more." The organization is "a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, trains and educates progressives on how to use technology to organize for change."

The IRS designation of a 501(c)(4) is a "social welfare organization" that is designated not-for-profit for the groups "operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare." 

The New York City local of the Democratic Socialists of America is using the platform to organize protests against Israel, which was brutally attacked by Hamas on October 7. In response, Israel declared war and has begun retaliatory strikes. The DSA believes these self-defense measures should be halted, and has demanded a ceasefire. 

The DSA shares videos calling Israel's counterattack on Hamas a "genocide," saying that Israel's goal is to "ethnically cleanse" Palestinians from Gaza. The Palestinian terror group Hamas, which was elected to rule the Palestinian territory in Gaza in 2006, has also called for a ceasefire, complaining that Israel is creating a humanitarian crisis. This demand has been made by US Reps Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Cori Bush as well, who have a history of anti-Semitic views. The DSA supports Bush's resolution, brought in the US House, to demand a ceasefire.

That resolution, brought by Cori Bush (MO-01), Rashida Tlaib (MI-12), André Carson (IN-07), Summer Lee (PA-12), and Delia C. Ramirez (IL-03), alongside Representatives Jamaal Bowman (NY-16), Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12), Jesús “Chuy” García (IL-04), Jonathan Jackson (IL-01), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), Ilhan Omar (MN-05), Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), and Nydia Velázquez (NY-07), calls the Palestinian territories "occupied," and demands that Israel not retaliate against the terrorists that stole the lives of more than 1,300 Israelis.

Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia called the congressmembers the "Hamas Caucus," and has called for the censure of Tlaib over her comments. The DSA has nearly 100,000 members spread out over 207 chapters across all 50 states of the US.

The DSA has used Action Network to launch their next protest in favor of terrorists, calling it “Ceasefire Now! Mass rally for Gaza!” The protest against one of America’s longest-standing allies claims that “Palestinians are on the brink of a genocide, and our government is bankrolling it. Every year, the US sends over $3 billion in military aid—now being used to rain bombs on Gaza. As Americans, we are not observers in this conflict, we are actors. That’s why we are joining calls around the world and directing them at our government to call for an immediate ceasefire, to open humanitarian aid flows into Gaza, and to end US funding for war crimes.”

The protest will take place on Friday at 5 pm, outside the New York Public Library steps at Bryant Park. They claimed this protest, and the demand for a ceasefire, puts the DSA “on the right side of history.”

The DSA NYC is joined by Jewish Voices for Peace-NY (JVP-NY), Adalah Justice Project (AJP), Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), Crown Heights Tenants Union (CHTU), the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE), If Not Now-NY, Malaya Movement NY, Bangladeshi Americans for Political Progress (BAPP), Muslim American Society of New York, (MAS-NY), Muslim Democratic Club of New York (MDCNY) and Majlis Ash-Shura: Islamic Leadership Council of New York.

Jewish Voices for Peace held a protest on Oct 18 at the US Capitol, staging a sit-in, after which some 300 protesters were arrested. Action Network touts its ability to “Mobilize communities, raise money, and engage supporters with tools built for change-makers, by change-makers.”
