Protest Israeli Massacre and Piracy –

Emergency demonstrations in NYC

Tuesday: 5pm – Israeli Mission 42nd St & 2nd Ave.

Emergency protests Tuesday in response to the brutal Israeli attack on 600 unarmed Palestine Solidarity activists from 40 countries participating in the Free Gaza Flotilla.

The Free Gaza Flotilla, comprised of 6 ships with nearly 7bringing emergency supplies to the Palestinians held under Israeli siege in Gaza , was attacked in international waters by 14 Israeli ships, helicopters and masked Israeli commandos.  Ten activists were reportedly killed and 50 injured.

Sponsored by International Action Center, Gaza Freedom March, Al Awda Palestine Right to Return Coalition NY and a number of Palestine solidarity and human rights activists and organizations.  AlAwda NYC points out that live footage from one of the boats reveals the Israeli soldiers were heavily masked and carrying live ammunition which they used on the unarmed passengers. None of the passengers or activists were armed.
