Emergency Rally in Solidarity of Gaza and the Great Return March

(Washington, D.C., April 7, 2018) – On Sunday, April 8th, a grassroots coalition of activists will be holding a rally at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C. in solidarity with the people of Gaza to demand:

• Palestinians be allowed to return to their homes peacefully according to UN resolution 194
• Palestinians be allowed to protest and demonstrate peacefully without being attacked
• An end to the siege on Gaza so that Palestinians may live normal lives

WHAT: Emergency Gaza Solidarity Rally
WHEN: Sunday, April 8th, 12noon
WHERE: Embassy of Israel, 3514 International Drive NW, Washington, D.C.
CONTACT: info@ampalestine.org

On March 30, during the Great Return March, the people of Gaza chose to protest for their right to return to their homeland. The Israeli military responded to this courageous action by opening fire against the crowds, killing at least 31 and wounding hundreds.

SEE: Protests in Gaza are leading to many deaths and injuries among Palestinians, yet Israel has faced little criticism

As the people of Gaza continue to march for their rights and come under fire, we organize in response to the killings to call on the U.S. government and members of Congress to end their silence and demand accountability for Israel’s grievous actions.

Note: This will be a nonviolent action. The organizers do not take accountability for or encourage violence of any kind.
