Community Encampment for Palestine: Salem

Sat June 29 @ 10:00 am Sun June 30 @ 5:00 pm EDT

We invite you to join us in our Community Encampments for Palestine and continue to advocate for justice. As the genocidal war rages on against Gaza, we are grieving, outraged and shocked by the ongoing Israeli atrocities.

Earlier this year, powerful and peaceful Student Encampments were established – to demand a permanent ceasefire, institutional divestment from Israel, end to Israeli apartheid, release of Palestinian prisoners, support for student protestors. We are disgusted that many of these encampments were violently destroyed by police in riot gear, following orders from university administrators.

The bravery of these students and the power, courage and determination of the Palestinian people, will be honored in a series of weekend community encampments in Salem (June 29-30), Western Massachusetts (Late July), and Cambridge (August 24-25). Join us in continuing and celebrating resistance in the face of injustice! A variety of speakers will hold discussions; kids’ activities will include poster making, story telling, coloring/bubbles, kite flying, and pin/patch making.  We will have Palestinian food, film screenings, dancing, music, and opportunities for action throughout. The exact schedule and details can be found below.

Sign Up

It will cost $1500 to put on the encampment.  Your donations are much appreciated and tax-deductible! Sponsored by MAPA Education Fund, North Shore for Palestine, JVP Boston, Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine, and Beverly Ceasefire.
