Saturday July 28 Protest Against the Siege on Gaza, Anaheim, CA

Emergency Protest for PalestineStop the Siege on Gaza! End the Occupation Now!

Saturday, July 28, 1 pmAnaheim (Brookhurst Plaza, 512 S. Brookhurst St, Between Broadway and Orange)

Join members of the Arab community this Saturday, July 28, at 1 pm at an emergency protest against the continuing U.S.-backed Israeli siege on Gaza. The Rafah border checkpoint--the main route for Palestinians in Gaza to access work, food and other basic resources to survive--has been closed by Israel for six weeks straight.

Over six thousand Palestinians are stranded at the border and are unable return to their homes and families. The conditions at the border are deteriorating everyday. These Palestinians, like millions more around the world, want to return to their homes and land. They must wait no longer. The economic and military siege on Gaza must end now!

This Saturday, we will gather on the corner of Brookhurst and Orange in the heart of the Arab American community in Anaheim to make our voices heard.

Many would like to see those who support peace and justice for Palestine divided. But our common struggle should unite us. Let's stand with the people of Gaza who stand steadfast, despite the brutality of this illegal occupation. End the siege on Gaza now! End the occupation now!
