Stand Out in Solidarity with The People of Gaza

20 Park Plaza, Boston
Last Friday Israeli snipers killed 16 people and wounded 1,400 (according to the UK Guardian) during unarmed mass demonstrations demanding the right of return for Palestinian refugees. More than 70 percent of Gaza’s 2 million residents are refugees expelled from their homes inside Israel and their descendants. The civil society protests are set to continue until Nakba day in mid May.
We will gather outside the Israeli Consulate to demand an end to the killing of unarmed protestors, an end to the suffocating decade-long blockade of Gaza and the full implementation of international law including that guaranteeing the rights of refugees. Let Gaza live! Free Palestine!
