That's just beautiful, so many countries taking part.
All major cities in Australia are having one except mine!

There was a big turnout here in Toronto--actually both Palestinian+Jewish groups protested peacefully to the Palestinian support was a much larger group. Thx Jess

Gladly noted. Thx for posting, Jess, and to GGma for the forward. Incredibly relieved that all the violence, murder and suffering is getting international notice. Bibi the Bully denies that worldwide protests will have any effect on Israeli actions, however...

Since June 12th, Israel has engaged in a brutal campaign of collective punishment against the Palestinian people, bombing Gaza and raiding West Bank towns and villages, arresting hundreds of civilians, including children across the West Bank and 1948 Palestine.

This past week we have witnessed the brutal deaths and beatings of dozens of Palestinians at the hands of both Israeli forces and Israeli settlers. Such as the horrific death of Muhammad Abu Khdeir who was kidnapped, tortured, burned alive, and tossed in a field in an unbelievable act of savagery by Israeli settlers.

Israel also began intensifying its bombing of Gaza in the most serious flare-up in the territory since November 2012. Israel has deemed their latest attacks “Operation Protective Edge”, and in ways that are reminiscent of the 2009 and 2012 attacks, they have called up 1,500 reservists in the Israeli military.

Across Palestine, this wave of violence has also been met with a wave of protest and action. Palestinians are rising up and responding across all of historic Palestine including the West Bank, Gaza, and 1948 Palestine.

We demand an end to the recent bombing campaign of Gaza, along with an end to the ongoing siege of Gaza. We also demand an end to Israel’s raids, killings, beatings, and arrests in West Bank. We must act to stop this escalation before it continues any further and more lives are lost.

We ask that you take the action steps below:

TAKE ACTION:
Call the White House (202) 456-1111 and Secretary of State John Kerry (202) 647-4000 and demand condemnation of the Israeli assault on Gaza
