Rally at the Westwood Federal Building in Los Angeles
Israel has been waging a brutal assault on the people of Gaza.
To date, the death toll from Israeli airstrikes on Gaza had reached 185 people -- all of them Palestinians, nearly all civilians -- with at least 1400 wounded, according to the UN. The casualties are growing by the hour, with Israeli strikes on civilian homes, clearly-marked press vehicles, a home for the disabled, and even ambulances.
There is nowhere for people in Gaza to hide. The cruel blockade imposed on Gaza denies them medical supplies necessary to save lives.
The Israeli government is showing no signs of stopping, and is possibly mounting a ground invasion of the city. Attacks from the air are escalating.
The Israeli and U.S. media are depicting the war on Gaza as “self-defense,” even though zero Israelis have been killed and have been waging an all-out assault with vastly superior weaponry.
With repeated attacks on helpless civilian targets, with the number of dead Palestinian women, children and elderly growing rapidly, the “war” can only be called one thing: a massacre.
The U.S. government, which provides billions in weapons and funding to the Israeli military, is uncritically supporting the Israeli war crimes.
Join us for a rally outside the Westwood Federal Building to demand:
-Stop the massacre in Gaza!
-End U.S. aid to Israel!
-Free Palestine-End the occupation now!
