Stop the Siege on Gaza! End the Occupation Now!

Join members of the Arab community and their allies this Saturday, July 28, at 1 pm at an emergency protest against the continuing U.S.-backed Israeli siege on Gaza. The Rafah border checkpoint--the main route for Palestinians in Gaza to access work, food and other basic resources to survive--has been closed by Israel for six weeks straight.

Over 6,000 Palestinians are stranded at the checkpoint, unable return to their homes and families. The conditions are deteriorating each day. These Palestinians, like millions more around the world, want to return to their homes and land. They should not have to wait any longer. The economic and military siege on Gaza must end now!

We will gather on the corner of Brookhurst and Orange in the heart of Orange County's Arab American community to make our voices heard.
Bring flags, signs, banners and show solidarity with Palestine.

Many would like to see those who support peace and justice for Palestine divided. But our common struggle should unite us. Let's stand with the people of Gaza who stand steadfast, despite the brutality of this illegal occupation.

End the siege on Gaza now! End the occupation now! Free Palestine!
