PALESTINE: Behind the Wall
Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 7:00 pm
ArtRage Gallery (505 Hawley Ave, Syracuse NY 13203)

 

The Justice for Palestine committee invites you to join us for an informational event and discussion on current Palestinian human rights issues, and to kick off our 2019 petitioning campaign to help end Israeli military detention of Palestinian children!


We will discuss water rights in the West Bank and Gaza, the economic importance and symbolism of olive trees, the crippling blockade of Gaza and recent Great March of Return movement, and the Israeli's military's systematic ill-treatment of Palestinian children through detention and imprisonment. We'll explain and learn from one another about actions we can take, individually and collectively, to oppose the Israeli military occupation of Palestine and support Palestinian human rights.


Free and open to the public. Light food & drinks will be served.
ArtRage is an accessible facility.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in Cazenovia and in Syracuse for our 2 No Good Morning, No Good Night events this past Fall.  Each was an informal presentation and discussion with Julia Ganson, Julia Fuleihan, Mary Kuhn, and Ron VanNorstrand about their recent visit to the West Bank, and their account of occupation, oppression, and popular resistance to the ongoing Nakba in Palestine.

FREE GAZA Demonstrations, April - October 2018

 

Following the Great March of Return protests in Gaza between March 30, and May 15 (Nakba Day), 2018, Palestinians in Gaza have continued to protest at the Israel-Gaza border fence every Friday against the forced displacement of their families from their homes in 1948.

At least 154 Palestinians have been killed in these protests, and over 16,000 wounded, by Israeli military fire.

Our public presence aims to stand in solidarity with Gazans who continue to demand their internationally-recognized right to return to their homeland, and those who have died for the cause.
