LA STANDS WITH GAZA
This Sunday, November 18th, 12:30 to 3:00 PM
At The Westwood Federal Building
11000 Wilshire Boulevard - Los Angeles 90024
Meet at Northwest Corner of Wilshire & Veteran
Please join us this Sunday to stand in solidarity with the people of Gaza.
Four years ago Israel's unprovoked invasion of Gaza left over 1400
Palestinians dead, including several hundred women & children, plus
thousands more seriously injured. Now Israel has launched another unprovoked
& violent attack on the 1.5 million citizens of Gaza. �More than 30
Palestinians have already been killed, half of them women and children.
Rallies in support of our friends in Gaza are being held around the world as
people of all faiths and nationalities demonstrate their outrage and to show
support for the victims in Gaza.
We expect a counter demonstration at approximately the same time and
location by Stand With Us, the well-funded Zionist group which supports
Israel and its latest invasion of Gaza and which regularly shows up at our
STOP THE ATTACKS ON GAZA
ISRAEL HAS NEVER STOPPED ATTACKING GAZA.
During Operation Cast Lead, 2008-9, Israel killed 1400 Palestinians in Gaza,
most of them civilians. Since the end of Operation Cast Lead, Israel has
continued regular attacks on Gaza, killing 271 Palestinians between February
2009 and October 2012. Palestinians have responded with rocket fire,
killing 5 Israeli civilians over the same period. www.btselem.org
ISRAEL BEGAN THE CURRENT ESCALATION OF VIOLENCE.
On November 5, Israeli soldiers shot and killed an unarmed Palestinian man
in Gaza. On November 8. Israeli soldiers fired indiscriminately into villages
and killed a 13 year old boy. Palestinians in Gaza responded with rocket fire.
Israel attacked again on November 10, killing several more Palestinians.
ISRAEL BROKE ANOTHER TRUCE.
Egypt helped arrange a truce on November 13. On November 14, Israel
broke the truce with the extrajudicial murder of a Hamas military officer.
Palestinians have responded with rocket fire, and Israel is mounting
a full-scale land invasion along with bombing attacks.
ISRAEL STILL HOLDS GAZA UNDER ILLEGAL SIEGE & BLOCKADE.
Israel controls Gaza's airspace, water, electricity, seacoast, borders (in
collaboration with Egypt), imports and exports. Gaza has become
an open-air prison for 1.5 million Palestinians.
END THE SIEGE AND BLOCKADE OF GAZA.
STOP ISRAEL'S ATTACKS ON GAZA.
END ISRAELI APARTHEID.
STOP THE ETHNIC CLEANSING OF PALESTINE.
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
