Vigil for Gaza

7:30pm Wednesday 2/20

Gaza is under siege. An Israeli policy of collective punishment has cut off the entry of food, fuel, electricity, and other essential supplies. In a blockade that has now lasted 8 months, 80% of Gazans are living below the poverty line, and more than 40 have died in hospitals due to a lack of medical supplies. Come to a candlelight vigil for Gaza at the Sundial at 7:30pm this Wednesday to take a stand against this suffering, and our government's complicity in it.

Sponsored by Students for Justice in the Middle East, which meets weekly on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in 522D Kent. SJME is just getting restarted - if you are interested in taking action around Palestinian rights or other issues in the region, they would love to see you at our next meeting.
