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
