After the rally at the White House (Lafayette Park, north side), we will march. Our march has great symbolic importance that will bring a message to people in Washington and throughout the world. We will be focusing on the U.S. corporations—both military contractors and the media—who have been essential in Israel’s U.S.-backed war against the Palestinians or in justifying its actions. Read about the plan for the march.

There will be coinciding West Coast demonstrations in San Francisco (11am at Civic Center) , Los Angeles (12 noon at Westwood Federal Building), and elsewhere.
