Emergency Protest: Stop the Massacre in Gaza Tuesday May 15 @ 7pm Atlanta

JOIN IN SOLIDARITY

Emergency Protest: Stop the Massacre in Gaza Tuesday May 15 @ 7pm in Atlanta
Centennial Olympic Dr NW & Marietta St NW

Today, Israeli snipers have used live fire to kill at least 41 Palestinian protesters, and injured nearly 2,000 more in Gaza. Palestinians are protesting 70 years of Nakba, for their right to return to their homes and land, and President Trump’s decision to undermine any hope of peace by moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Protesters, journalists, paramedics: no one at #GreatReturnMarch is safe from sniper fire.

It is urgent that we show our solidarity and support for Palestinians in Gaza who are being massacred and maimed by Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightwing government using American taxpayer dollars.

Atlanta joins cities all around the world in expressing outrage against the continued ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. We call on all concerned individuals to take a stand for the Palestinians, still occupied, still violently forced from their land.

Let us raise our voices and show that the people of Atlanta and the US will stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow human beings in Palestine.

We plan to hold an emergency demonstration and march in solidarity with Gaza Tuesday, May 15th, at 7 pm. Look for the Palestinian flags at Centennial Olympic Dr NW & Marietta St NW. Bring friends, family, allies and your banners and voices!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD FOR PEOPLE POWER!
