Demonstration for Gaza, Spring 2014

#FreePalestine #GazaUnderAttack

The massacre continues…
July 20 the Israeli forces bombarded the small village of Al-Shujaaya murdering 80 civilians in one day.
Unfortunately the media is not giving Gaza the fair share of media coverage which needs to change. Come out Friday afternoon to stand with Gaza an expression of solidarity from the Kitchener Waterloo community with the Palestinians.

Chants, Speakers and demonstrations from the members of the community. Let’s raise awareness of the issue, let’s show the community what the media is not!

Interested in volunteering email sfprexecs@gmail.com

Be the change!
