AYO: the Arab Youth Organization of AROC outraged by the recent attacks on the Palestinian people called for the demonstration last Saturday to demand an end to US aid to Israel and an end to the Zionist rule over Palestine.
1500 people marched through San Francisco and shut down Market street, while inside, a 60 foot Palestinian flag took over the atrium of Westfield Mall. Our Bay Area community stood up for Palestine and joined the flood of Palestinian solidarity throughout the world while the people of Palestine bravely face airstrikes, raids, kidnappings and torture at the hands of the 4th largest military in the world.
Over the last few weeks, Israel has killed over 170 Palestinians, over 36 of them children, destroyed 940 homes, burned and destroyed 32 fishing boats, injured 1200 people and is preparing for an on the ground invasion in Gaza. All the while, The US continues to be complicit with Israeli Apartheid and the attempted genocide of the Palestinian people by sending billions of dollars in aid to Israel each year.
Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Against Israel Now!
No to Zionist Rule Over Palestine!
Stop US Aid to the Apartheid State of Israel!
Free all our political prisoners!
Support the Palestinian people’s struggle for liberation!
