Protest on Tuesday, July 29th!

March to End U.S. Support for
Israeli War Crimes Against Occupied Palestine
Tuesday, July 29, 4-6pm
Gather at the State Capitol by 4pm

On each of the last two Tuesdays, more than 100 people responded to a call to protest at the corners of Atkinson/Ala Moana that was sent out by the AdHoc Coalition made up of community members, activists and academics.

This week's action will be a march. Gather at the State Capitol at 4. The march begins promptly at 4:15. Bring signs if you have them. The march will end at the corner of Ala Moana and Atkinson, where they will join others holding signs there. 

Those not marching, meet up to demonstrate/sign-wave from 4-6pm at the corners of Ala Moana and Atkinson Boulevards where you'll be joined by marchers. Some rides will be provided to take people back to the Capitol. 

World Can't Wait-Hawai`i is organizing sign-making at Revolution Books on Sunday from 12-4pm. Some big pens, paints, brushes, and poster board will be provided but feel free to bring more. Stop by for a few minutes or for a few hours. Revolution Books is at 2626 So. King Street (between Puck's Alley & 7-11. Drive into the King Street entrance to Puck's Alley and take a quick right. Parking in front is free. 

People of conscience cannot remain silent! Israel is guilty of war crimes againt the people of Occupied Palestine and is enabled by United States financial support of over $3 billion in aid per year. Today a U.N. sponsored refugee center in Gaza was bombed, killing 15 people and wounding 80 more.   Silence = Complicity!

In protesting, we join together with Palestinians and the international community in opposing Israel’s violations of international law. Our tax dollars are supporting Israel’s massacre of the Palestinian residents of Gaza, the bombing of hospitals and homes, the use of illegal weapons, and the destruction of the infrastructure in which the 1.8 million people of Gaza are imprisoned, with no way to leave, and without adequate water or power. As of Wednesday, there have been over 700 killed; one-third of these have been children. These are war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

U.S. Support for Israel = Death in Gaza!
