Chicago, IL - A die-in was held inside Chicago City Hall, July 30, to demand Boeing Company be dropped as a sponsor for the summer Air and Water Show next month. 40 protesters dropped to the floor, holding signs with the names of the dead in Gaza from Israel’s three week long war.

Chicago-based Boeing is being targeted around the country for its role in the slaughter of Palestinian civilians, because Boeing F15 fighter jets and Apache attack helicopters are responsible for many of the 1300 dead.

The protest was called by the Anti-War Committee-Chicago, and joined by a dozen other groups, including Jews for Justice in Palestine and the U.S. Palestinian Community Network.
