Aug. 2 National March on the White House: Stop the Massacre in Gaza!

Let Gaza live!

Palestine coffins
We will be carrying symbolic coffins draped
in Palestinian flags to the White House.
 

Saturday, Aug. 2
*TIME CHANGE*: Rally begins at 12:30pm (not 1pm)

Gather at the White House
Washington, D.C.
Transportation is being organized from all over the country (see the transportation center section for downloadable flyers and posters)

Join thousands of people in a National March on the White House on Saturday, August 2 at 12:30pm to condemn the Israeli massacre in Gaza.

We have been in the streets every day in cities around the country. What is needed now is a massive National March on Washington.

Israel receives $4 billion in “aid” from the United States each year. This money is being used to commit war crimes against the Palestinian people in Gaza. We are demanding that all U.S aid to Israel be ended now!

More than 1,500 people in Gaza have been killed and more than 8,000 have been wounded from Israeli bombs and missiles. This has to end!

Join us to demand:

  • Stop the massacre in Gaza! End the blockade of Gaza! 
  • End all U.S. aid to Israel!
  • End the colonial occupation!
