Endorse the June 4 Protest in Los Angeles

The ANSWER Coalition, Al-Awda, Free Palestine Alliance, Palestinian American Women's Association and many others, are co-sponsoring a mass protest in Los Angeles this Friday, June 4, to denounce the Israeli military massacre of activists on the Gaza freedom flotilla.

At least 9 were killed by Israel, with dozens injured, brutally beaten and illegally interrogated. After a major LA protest on Monday and other actions throughout the week, let's make Friday's protest the biggest outpouring yet. We encourage people to bring signs, banners, Palestinian flags to show your support for the Palestinian people and their struggle for self-determination.

In an act of piracy and a blatant violation of international law, the Israeli government committed a cold-blooded massacre on the high seas against a group of courageous individuals whose only crime was to extend a hand of solidarity to the besieged and blockaded people in Gaza.

The Gaza aid flotilla is made up of ships carrying 750 people and bringing medical, construction and school supplies to besieged Palestinians in Gaza. It was illegally attacked in international waters by 14 Israeli ships. Heavily armed Israeli commandos dropped onto the ships from helicopters and opened fire on the activists.

Gaza has been blockaded by Israel since 2007 with full backing by the U.S. government. The blockade is a brutal form of collective punishment aimed at strangling the Palestinian people. Since coming to office, the Obama administration has continued the enormous funding to Israel allowing the continued siege of Gaza, the occupation and expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, and Israel's non-stop war against all of the Palestinian people. President Obama has promised at least $30 billion in military aid to Israel over the next 10 years.

Endorse the June 4 Protest in Los Angeles

Come out to these protests to condemn this outrageous massacre and call for an immediate end of the siege of Gaza.
