In response to the international consensus in opposition to the Israeli Apartheid wall, and the International Court of Justice’s recent decision determining that the Israeli Apartheid wall violates the rights of the Palestinian people, the U.S. administration and the majority of Congress joined Israel by defying the world and supporting this racist and colonial Apartheid wall.
Recognizing that the upcoming period provides an important window to address the US policy, the Anti-Wall Taskforce (AWT) was formed to coordinate all efforts pertaining to the proposed protest actions and Solidarity Fasts to be carried out in various cities in the United States and Canada on the following days:
* July 24 and 25, 2004–days leading up to the Democratic National Convention
* August 28 and 29, 2004–days leading up to the Republican National Convention
* January 19 and 20, 2005–the day before and day of the presidential inauguration
