THIS IS A PEACEFUL PROTEST. WE CONDEMN ANY AND ALL HATE SPEECH.
Who: The People around the world are speaking up in solidarity against the Occupation across all lines that have historically divided us, calling for an end to the violent Occupation that Palestinians have been suffering under for decades. The event is organized by concerned citizens of Hamtramck, Detroit and the metro-Detroit area.
Why: The conflict in Gaza has once again been put in the spotlight. The Occupation of Palestine by Israel, which continues what can only be described as war crimes according to the 4th Geneva convention, increases it’s assault on the civilian population by bombing civilian residents, UN safe zones, schools, hospitals, and businesses. The IOF snipers have been recorded murdering and maiming the innocent people of Palestine. The illegal settlers have been injuring and killing Palestinians without recourse. Palestinian land and homes are raided on a near daily basis, and often the families are thrown out as the IOF claim possession, leaving the true occupants homeless. The People inside Gaza and the West Bank are unlikely to leave, even to visit family outside of Gaza, unable to trade goods outside their lands, unable to have access to clean water, they are unable to rebuild their homes, they have restrictions on farming, fishing, and most are unlikely to have a job.
Please come and support a pro-Palestinian stance, as most main stream media is compelled to their limited pro-Occupation talking points, and parrots the Israeli propaganda machine, regarding Hamas, terrorists, and the use of children as human shields.
Come shed light on the truth and be an instrument of change for the freedom of our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
