March, Bike, and Ride to End the Assault on Gaza

July 24, Thursday at 6pm
Pioneer Court House Square

Please join us this Thursday - as part of a national day of action - in this urgent call to stop the assault on Gaza, end the blockade, and end US military support of Israel. In this latest round of violence, over 500 Palestinians have been killed and thousands are injured. Seventy-two percent of those are civilians, including over 80 children. One hundred thousand are displaced and living in makeshift shelters; electricity has been reduced to four hours a day for 80% of the population; water has been cut off to hundreds of thousands; hospitals have been bombed and there are shortages of everything from food to medicines. We must act now!

While you're at it be sure to rally to restore the legitimate govt of Palestine, the PA to Gaza. Removing Hamas as a separate military and sovereign entity will go a long way to accomplishing these goals.

Don't forget an ass has two cheeks. You'll wipe one and not the other?

Odd. I was posting that human beings should form political parties and participate in creating a peaceful and prosperous future together. Your contribution is to describe human beings as feces?
