Seattle: Day of Rage Seattle Rally
1 July 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Wednesday, 1 July
810 Virginia St
Seattle, WA, USA
In solidarity with the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network’s global call to action to confront Israeli annexation and struggle for a free Palestine, we are organizing a local Day of Rage rally at the West SPD Precinct. Along with actions organized by Palestinian communities in exile and diaspora and solidarity movements around the world, Seattle Palestinian, Black and Indigenous communities are organizing a Day of Rage rally against Israel’s annexation of the West Bank of Palestine and against police terrorism in the US. We demand the defunding and dismantling of US police alongside the defunding and dismantling of Zionist colonialism and racist Israeli apartheid. Join us on Wednesday, July 1st from 5:30-7:00 at the SPD West Precinct [810 Virginia Street, Seattle WA 98101]. Bring your masks, uphold social distancing, bring signs and bring your rage.
We are organizing to expose and oppose the deadly exchange of trainings, technologies and weapons between the Seattle Police Department and the Israeli police and military forces. These trainings make US police forces and the Israeli military more dangerous and reinforce these fascist institutions controlled by the state which both take the lives and terrorize oppressed Black and Indigenous people in our communities. We are outraged by the occupation of Palestine. We are outraged by the police murders of Black people. We are outraged by this oppression and call everyone to join us in saying enough is enough!
Our collective demands:
1) Defund the Seattle Police Department
2) End the Deadly Exchange between SPD and Israeli police and military forces
3) End the City of Seattle’s security contract with G4S
The rally will be live streamed and have ASL interpretation. **More accessibility info to come
