Permits have been obtained for Lafayette Park directly in front of the White House for the opening rally of the mass demonstration in Washington DC on August 12. There has been an amazing response to this call for a national emergency action to protest the U.S.-Israeli war against the Palestinian and Lebanese people. The streets around the White House will fill up with a sea of protestors on August 12. Read the call to action for August 12.
Hundreds of organizations from around the country have endorsed and pledged to mobilize for the August 12 demonstration which was initiated by the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism), the National Council of Arab Americans (NCA) and the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation.

We urgently need your help now.

Please help - we can't do it without you! Donate online by clicking here. You can also send a check to: ANSWER Coalition 611 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, #430; Washington DC 20003-4303.
The ANSWER Coalition has been working with our partners in the Arab and Muslim community to initiate and organize rapid-response demonstrations around the country since Israel reinvaded Gaza three weeks ago, including three demonstrations at the Israeli embassy in Washington D.C., three demonstrations in New York including today's action at the U.N., actions in San Francisco and Los Angeles where hundreds of people turned out, Chicago, Seattle, and elsewhere.
Nothing is more critical than for the people of the U.S. to join together in a single large massive showing of opposition to the U.S.-backed slaughter of the Palestinian and Lebanese people. Be there on August 12, noon at the White House. Take these actions today:
