CHANGE OF VENUE - FOR THIS EVENT - CHANGE OF VENUE
05 Dec 2009
December 27th marks the one-year anniversary of Israel's invasion of The Gaza Strip. For 22 days at the turning of the year, while many of us in the U.S recovered from our holidays and made our resolutions, the residents of Gaza—half of them children—were subject to a terrifying assault known to the Israelis “Operation Cast Lead”. More than 1300 Gazans were killed in the attacks. Among the dead, at least 70% were civilian and approximately 300 were children. Numerous illegal targets were destroyed, including mosques, hospitals, and United Nations facilities. White phosphorus rained down on a school. The people of Gaza--whose borders are controlled by land, air and sea--were trapped during the onslaught within one of the most densely populated areas on earth. The killing ratio was 100 to 1. The economic blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip predates the invasion and continues to this day. Gazans cannot rebuild and they cannot leave. Today, with their civilization in ruins around them, their families injured or dead, severe shortages of water, electricity, medicines, and food affect every aspect of Palestinian life.

The historic Gaza Freedom March will take place on December 31st, 2009; it is the Palestinian people’s non-violent answer to the continuing devastation wrought upon them by the invasion and the inhumane blockade. Joined by internationals from around the world, tens of thousands of Gazans will march peacefully to demand an end to the illegal siege.

Benefit for the Gaza Freedom March Suggested donation $10.00

Sponsored by Newton Dialogues on Peace and War, BCPR, CODEPINK and JWJIP
Refreshments will be served.

Photos from Palestine Today

From Tom Gross's article:

"In Gaza too, the shops and markets are crammed with food and goods. But while photos from last Friday's Palestine Today newspaper, for example, depict sumptuous Eid celebrations, these are not the pictures you are ever likely to see on the BBC or Le Monde or the New York Times. No, Gaza is not like a "concentration camp," nor is the "humanitarian crisis in Gaza is on the scale of Darfur," as British journalist Lauren Booth (who is also Tony Blair's sister-in-law) has said."

Its still a blockade
16 Dec 2009
This photos were originally printed in an online paper from Gaza. It is an Arabic paper, and they were never meant to be widely circulated to the American public.
If you are planning a Gzaa vigil, do not talk about hunger or starvation- the Zionists will just pull out these photos. Instead, talk about the blockade of building supplies or medicine.
Just reframe the argument until people forget about these photos. They will. They always dom
