Columbus, OH: Free Palestine! #SaveSheikhJarrah
8 May 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Saturday, 8 May
Israeli settlers, backed by the US-funded Israeli Occupation Forces, are trying to force Palestinians out of their homes in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. 500 Palestinians are at risk of eviction.
Settlers and Israeli soldiers have been attacking Palestinians daily and inflicting severe violence in their attempt to ethnically cleanse East Jerusalem. On Wednesday night, Israeli forces murdered 16-year-old Said Odeh elsewhere in the West Bank, near Nablus.
Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah and across occupied Palestine have been been steadfast in their resistance to occupation, apartheid, and ethnic cleansing. Stand with them to #SaveSheikhJarrah.
Rally at Goodale Park starting at 1 pm on Saturday, May 8.
