A demonstration and march hosted by Occupy Boston protested U.S. support of Israel’s presence in “Palestine.”

Tuesday’s march, under the moniker Occupy Boston-Not Palestine, was held in conjunction with dozens of members of Jewish Women for Justice in Palestine at Dewey Square, the center of the Occupy Boston movement, according to a report in the The Daily Free Press, a Boston University independent student publication.

The protesters linked arms and marched down the street chanting slogans.

Protesters told the student newspaper that Israel uses U.S. tax dollars to occupy Palestine, and that the new Middle East will marginalize the United States over its relationship with Israel.

“We need to build houses in the U.S. instead of destroying houses in Palestine,” Nancy Murray of Boston told the student newspaper. “The occupation has gone on for so long because the U.S. vetoed 41 valid U.N. Security Council resolutions. They’ve given Israel the green light to abuse human rights.”
