Stop the Massacre of Palestinians!

Tuesday, December 30: National Day of Action
Emergency Demonstrations on Tuesday, December 30 and other days (listed below)

The ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom, Free Palestine Alliance, National Council of Arab Americans, and Al-Awda, International Palestine Right to Return Coalition are calling for Tuesday, December 30 to be a National Day of Action to
show solidarity with the Palestinian people in Gaza and to demand an
immediate end to the murderous attacks carried out by the Israeli
military against the people of Gaza.

In Washington,
D.C., there will be a demonstration at the State Department at 4:30 pm.
Demonstrations will also be held in cities around the country. See
below for an initial list. If there is a demonstration in your city, email the details to info at answercoalition.org so it can be posted on the ANSWER Coalition website and listed in any future emails. 



Hundreds
of Palestinians in Gaza have been massacred and wounded today as Israel
has launched a massive bombing campaign against the people of Gaza. The
bombing rampage took place as thousands of Palestinian children were in
the streets on their way home from school. Palestinian parents were
running frantically in the streets looking for their children as
U.S.-provided F-16s and Apache helicopters rained down more than 100
bombs and missiles on Gaza. 

The U.S.-backed Israeli Occupation
Force destroyed every security station in Gaza. AFP reported: "There
was no space left in the morgue and bodies were piled up in the
emergency room and in the corridors, as many of the wounded screamed in
pain."

Because of the U.S.-backed Israeli blockade and
strangulation of the people of Gaza for the past 18 months there is
little or no medicine to treat the wounded, electricity for hospitals,
or food or clean water for much of the population. 

An Israeli
military spokesperson said, "The operation is ‘only just beginning’."
The Israeli Defense Ministry said in a statement: "The action will
continue and will widen as much as is demanded according to the
evaluation of the situation by the high command of the army."
