Bus to DC for Red Line White House Protest

Fri June 7 @ 12:00 am - Sun June 9 @ 3:30 am EDT

June 8 marks 8 months of US-Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people, and marks the 54th anniversary of the occupation of Gaza. A month ago, Biden said that the invasion of Rafah was a red line. But now, the invasion of Rafah has continued for weeks, has expanded to the entire Gaza Strip, Biden’s red line is nowhere to be seen. Instead of following through and stopping military aid to Israel, Biden has authorized billions more in weapons shipments to be used to kill and massacre Palestinians.

 

Biden can’t draw the line, but we can. On June 8, we will come together from across the country and surround the White House. Wearing red, and raising our demands high, we will show the world that we are the red line. We demand an immediate ceasefire, an immediate end to the siege on Gaza, the freedom of all Palestinian prisoners, and an end to the occupation of Palestine. Stop the Genocide! We are the red line! Free Palestine! For more information on the demonstration, click here: https://www.shutitdown4palestine.org/.

 

Hundreds of people from Boston will ride together in buses down to D.C in an entirely volunteer-funded effort to participate. We will be gathering at 1234 Columbus Ave in Roxbury at 11pm and departing at midnight on the night of Friday, June 7th from Roxbury. We will arrive in DC around 7-8am on Saturday, June 8th. After the march in DC, we will board the buses at 7pm on the same day in order to arrive back in Boston on Sunday morning (June 9th) around 3-4am.
