SILENT Protest on UCSD Library Walk
UPDATE: 2:52AM The Israeli Military has assaulted a humanitarian aid convoy headed to the Gaza Strip and killed at least 16 activists, while wounding dozens more
All students and faculty of conscious against Israeli crimes are joining together for a silent protest and demonstration on UC San Diego Library Walk Tuesday, June 1 from 12:00PM-2:00PM
It is imperative that you attend this rally.
Human rights activist, elected officials, former diplomats, aid workers and activists were en route by sea to Gaza to break Israel's blockade of the tiny strip of land. A total of six ships, including two cargo ships and other passenger vehicles, were carrying more than 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid to the besieged region, which has been under Israeli blockade since 2006.
Israel has also commandeered Free Gaza Movement vessels in the past. The Israeli military took action against unarmed peace and civil resistance volunteers. Furthermore, a fleet of so-called Israeli citizens were also en route to intercept and harass the flotilla. AMP and the Free Gaza Movement are extremely concerned about the safety of the humanitarian activists who were aboard the Freedom Flotilla.
The Free Gaza flotilla was on its way to Gaza. Unlike previous Free Gaza boats, this flotilla includes large vessels, it was carrying substantial amounts of reconstruction supplies, medical and school supplies, and 800 passengers from 50 countries. It couldn't afford to fail. It was an opportunity to denounce the inhumanity of Israel's three year long siege and running. Israel said before the assault that it would stop the boats from reaching Gaza, they have done it before and they can do it again: http://bit.ly/
We can not wait until something happens before we mobilize. If we are to be helpful in this effort, we need to begin support activities immediately!
If the convoy has already been attacked or blockaded, our demonstration will be a powerful protest. If it has not yet arrived, our demonstration will be a demand that it be allowed to pass in peace.
