On Monday, May 14 th , Trump officially moved the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. At the same time hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have escalated their protests across the West Bank and Gaza. These protestors have been met with unimaginable brutality with over 50 killed and 2700 inured. This latest massacre comes on the heels of five weeks of sustained Palestinian protest demanding the right of return for all Palestinian refugees and their descendants to their original homes and lands.
The Chicago Coalition for Justice in Palestine is calling for a mass emergency rally May 15th to respond to the Israeli brutality and to reject the Trump administration’s dangerous and illegal embassy move. The rally will coincide with the Nakba what the Palestinians call “The Catastrophe” marking the ethnic cleansing of almost 800,000 Palestinians in 1948 as Israel was established.
