Marking the 60th Year of Al Nakba

Southern California events marking the Palestinian Catastrophe (Al Nakba)

Women in Black Gaza Vigil–Tuesday, 2/26, 7pm at Wilshire Theatre

Posted by nakba60la on February 25, 2008

WHAT: A silent vigil in support of the people of Gaza

WHERE: Wilshire Theatre, 8440 Wilshire Blvd, SouthWest corner of Wilshire and Hamilton, near the man on the horse, Beverly Hills

WHEN:  Tuesday night, February 26, 7:00 pm

REASON: The pro-Israel group, Stand with Us, is “launching its 60th anniversary of Israel’s independence” with a concert for the children of Sderot at the Wilshire Theatre.

Yet, as Israel’s supporters celebrate the its 1948 declaration of statehood, 2008 also marks the 60th year of al Nakba (“the catastrophe”) when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were violently expelled from their homes and driven from their native land.

Today, the people of Gaza live in a prison, surrounded by 27-foot walls.  Supplies of food, fuel, electricity, potable water, medicine, water filters and much more are severely restricted by Israel.  The children of Gaza are at even more risk than the children of Sderot of being maimed or killed.

Why is the Stand with Us concert only for Sderot’s children and not for Gaza’s children as well?

Please join us in silent protest at 7 pm.  Our signs say:

SAVE THE CHILDREN OF GAZA AND SDEROT

KILLING ANY CHILD IS WRONG

STOP THE SEIGE OF GAZA

STOP ISRAELI WAR CRIMES IN GAZA

Signed by:

Women in Black Los Angeles
