The Austin Community Protests Israel's Assault on the Palestinian People
When: Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 5:00 - 6:30 pm
Where: In front of the Texas Capitol building, on 11th Street at Congress
Austinís Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights (ICPR), Muslim American Society (MAS), and Palestine Solidarity Committee at UT (PSC), along with supporters in the community, will assemble at the Capitol to protest Israelís assault on the Palestinian people.? ?
In recent weeks Israel has escalated its aggression against the Palestinian people, deliberately and systematically harming many members of the Palestinian civilian population as punishment for the actions of a few individuals.
Since Israel's assault on Gaza began on July 8th, 2014, more than 500 Palestinians have been killed, of whom 80% were civilians, according to a U.N. estimate, including at least 120 children. In addition, thousands have been injured, more than 1,000 homes destroyed, and approximately 80,000 people displaced. Gaza has been under a harsh siege since 2007.
ICPR, MAS, and PSC demand that Israel end the illegal and immoral collective punishment of the Palestinian people, and that our government condemn and sanction Israel as long as it continues to violate international law and human rights.
This is our fourth demonstration for Gaza since the start of Israel's war against the people of Gaza 12 days ago, and hundreds of concerned citizens have joined us to stand in solidarity with the besieged Palestinian people.
