SOLIDARITY WITH PALESTINE: March in Support of International Human Rights Workers in the Occupied Territories
22 May 2003
At 3:30 on May 20, about fifty people gathered at Park St. for a march in support of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and other human rights workers in Palestine, which has been under military occupation by Israel since 1967. The march had been organized by BostonToPalestine, a local group that supports the work of the ISM. From Park St. We marched through Downtown Crossing to the Israel consulate, where the organizers unsuccessfully attempted to send in a delegation, and then on to Copley Square, where we joined the weekly anti-war vigil. The brutality of Israelís occupation has grown over the last few years, since the start of the most recent intifadah (the struggle against the occupation). In an effort to hide their crimes the Israeli military has also begun targeting human rights workers, journalists and United Nations (UN) humanitarian workers who might carry word of the brutality of the occupation to the outside world.
