Oregon: Practical Solidarity With Gaza

Stop the War on Gaza Pt 2
Wednesday Nov 21 at 5:30 pm
Pioneer Courthouse Square

As Israel's assault on Gaza continues into its 6th day the Palestinian Death toll has risen to a 115, with over 900 injured.

The threat of a full scale Israeli ground invasion continues to loom even as Israel's airstrikes continue to rain death on Gaza.

As US Politicians continue their shameful political and material complicity in Israel's attack, it is up to people around the world to stand with the people of Gaza and against Israel's criminal attacks!!

JOIN PORTLAND as we continue to mobilize to say Stop the Attacks on Gaza!! Demand Israel end to its illegal policies of war, occupation, and apartheid!
