CALL TO ACTION: March for Palestine
New York City – On Monday, May 14, Israeli forces killed at least 58 Palestinians in Gaza and wounded thousands. Today's march is the response to the near-culmination of the historic #GreatReturnMarch, where for six weeks, tens of thousands of Palestinians — families, children, elders — have been gathering along the fence that keeps 2 million people penned in in an open air prison.
In grief and rage, we will mourn those who have been killed. With respect and inspiration, we will amplify the demands of Palestinians: the right to live in freedom and dignity, and the right to return home.
6:00 pm: Meet at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47th St & 2nd Ave)
6:30 pm: March to offices of Senators Gillibrand & Schumer (780 3rd Ave)
*Wear black* Rain or shine
While Senator Schumer praised Trump’s embassy move, calling it “long overdue,” Senator Gillibrand has for 6 weeks remained silent on the ongoing massacre of unarmed protestors in Gaza by Israeli forces. These atrocities are made possible by unparalleled US backing -- so we must demand accountability.
This Wednesday, we invite our Jewish communities to come together outside the offices of Schumer & Gillibrand to say: NOT IN OUR NAME. Palestinians have the right to live in freedom and dignity, and the right to return home.
