Thursday, 5 April
Outside Israeli Consulate
20 Park Plaza
Last Friday Israeli snipers killed 16 people and wounded more than 1400 (according to the UK Guardian) during unarmed mass demonstrations demanding the right of return for Palestinian refugees. Another person was killed a few days later. More than 70 percent of the 2 million people who live in the Gaza Strip are refugees expelled from their homes inside Israel and their descendants. The civil society protests are set to continue until Nakba day, May 15.
The Stand Out in Solidarity with the People of Gaza will demand an end to the murder of unarmed protestors, an end to the suffocating decade-long blockade of Gaza and the full implementation of international law and UN resolutions guaranteeing the rights of refugees.
Let Gaza live! Free Palestine!
