Video from End the Occupation Rally Washington DC

Clips from speeches, including audio Roseanne Barr did for rally. Thousands rallied at the Capitol Building in Washington, DC to end U.S. government financial and political support for the 40 years Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Protesters called for equal rights in Palestine, including the right to return to confiscated land and former homes, towns and cities inside Israel

Noura Erakat: "Palestinians Will Not Disappear!"
One of the MCs at the "End the Israeli Occupation" rally and march, on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, in Washington, D.C., on June 10, 2007, was Ms. Noura Erakat. She said: "Palestinians will not disappear...Forty years [of occupation] is enough...This is a struggle for justice!" Ms. Erakat is the former National Organizer of the "US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation." The latter group, along with the "United for Peace & Justice" organization, were the two main sponsors of today's very spirited and successful event. Kudos to the organizers and to all of those who volunteered their services in support of this splendid rally/march.
