Join CODEPINK to #ShutDownREMAX R4 Convention!
Enough is enough. CODEPINK and allies will be having a national mobilization to the RE/MAX R4 Convention March 2-4, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas to protest RE/MAX’s selling of stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank. The mobilization will target the RE/MAX R4 Convention, the largest annual gathering with over 6,000 RE/MAX representatives in attendance from more than 60 countries around the world. We will be staging a three day presence outside the event which includes speakers like top RE/MAX executives, Peyton Manning, and even a performance by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
While RE/MAX Parties, Palestinians are Dying. Denver-based, RE/MAX International is directly profiting off of the selling of illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank through RE/MAX Israel. While Palestinian homes and olive groves are bulldozed to make way for new settlements, RE/MAX agents are doing business in all the major West Bank settlements and Occupied East Jerusalem violating international law and drawing condemnation from activists around the world including the UN Rapporteur to the Occupied Territories. RE/MAX is one of the primary profiteers of Israeli settlement expansion.
Join Us to #ShutDownREMAX! As part of the Boycott RE/MAX: No Open House on Stolen Land campaign, this mass mobilization will include direct actions, vigils, workshops and community-building spaces outside the Convention with activists across the country who are at the forefront of social justice, Indigenous rights, peace and human rights movements to demand RE/MAX Inc. shutdown settlement sales! #ShutDownREMAX.
Many activists will then be joining the mobilization to Creech Air Force base against drone strikes! Find more information here.
