To Mark the 2nd Anniversary of the Gaza Massacre

Sunday January 9, 2011 at 3 PM @ the Fountain in Balboa Park

The holidays have arrived and people all over the world are celebrating with their loved ones. Yet, this time of the year symbolizes a period of continuing terror and constant uncertainty for Palestinians imprisoned in the Gaza Strip, which remains today in its fourth year under a criminal siege.

Two years ago, the state of 'Israel' launched a 22-day brutal and criminal attack on 1.5 million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip. This attack began on December 27, 2008 and continued until January 18, 2009. The state of 'Israel' sealed off all the borders of Gaza to prevent Palestinians from fleeing to safety. The Gaza Strip was transformed into a slaughterhouse leaving 1417 Palestinians dead (including 352 children) & 5300 permanently wounded.

With the intensifying recent Israeli attacks and publicized threats on Gaza, we will be holding a demonstration followed by a candlelight vigil on this the 2nd anniversary of the 22-day massacre to demand an End to the Siege and Attacks on Gaza, and to remember and honor all the martyrs and the victims who were injured and terrorized.


The demonstration and candlelight vigil will take place on Sunday, January 9 starting at 3 PM @ the Fountain in Balboa Park.
