On Sunday, November 25th here in Seattle, a group of community peace activists are joining together to host Crisis in Gaza: End the Violence, End the Siege (see poster graphic). It will be held at University Temple United Methodist Church (corner of 43rd and 15th Avenue across from the UW Law School) at 7PM. Speakers including Palestinian-American Naseem Taffuha, Israeli-American Assaf Oron, and myself. We are seeking to confirm Ramzy Baroud’s participation at this time. There will also be testimony from Palestinian-Americans with family in Gaza.
Please join us whether or not a ceasefire has been implemented by then. We will present a positive, constructive approach that demands an immediate ceasefire, recognition of Hamas by Israel and the U.S., and end of the Gaza siege, and an end to targeting civilian populations on both sides.
Please circulate word of the event as widely as you can via e mail, social networks and word of mouth.
