On Sunday night, the Israeli Defense Forces conducted an outrageous military assault on a flotilla of unarmed ships in international waters carrying humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people of Gaza. Initial news reports state that least 9 (and perhaps as many as 19) civilians were killed by Israeli commandos who boarded one of the ships, guns blazing. This act of high-seas mass murder is illegal and immoral. It must be universally condemned and met with determined resistance.
Come to this Emergency Forum at Revolution Books on Tuesday night at 7pm. Join speakers in denouncing this war crime, digging into what lies behind the attack and our responsibility to act against it.
