‘Code Pink’ organizes end-of-year march in Gaza

on 5 Comments

Medea Benjamin of the antiwar group Code Pink, shown above visiting a school in Gaza last month, is organizing a large march inside Gaza at the end of the year to protest Israel’s blockade of the territory. Code Pink is holding an organizing meeting for the march on Thursday night in Washington. Benjamin writes:

CODEPINK is joining with Alice Walker, Gore Vidal, Howard Zinn, Norman Finkelstein and thousands upon thousands of Gazans to stage a huge march from Gaza to the Israeli border the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Hear all about it at an informational meeting at 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 30, at Busboys & Poets, 5th & K streets, NW, DC. (Just look for the CODEPINK sign!)

Order some dinner while we tell you more about the specific plans for the massive march, the prominent progressive thinkers and entertainers who have already signed up to participate, and how you can get involved! In fact, there will be opportunities to help with publicity, fundraising, and outreach to students, churches and other special constituencies. Please RSVP by responding to Pam Rasmussen at [email protected]
