Vigil for Global Justice
Sunday, January 16th 2005 12-3p,
On January 16th, 2005 the Israel Action Committee of the East Bay and Christians for Israel are bringing a bus from Jerusalem that was bombed last January. Their "Rally Against Global Terrorism" in Martin Luther King Jr Park in Berkeley will put forth the idea that Israelis are the main victims of terror in the region and will support Israel's continued military occupation of Palestinian lives and land.
We mourn the loss of all lives in this conflict, especially children's lives. And at this event we intend to put a face on the unseen Palestinian victims of the Israeli occupation and to support justice, rather than occupation and war, as a way to lasting peace.
Please join us for a silent vigil on Sunday, January 16 from 12-3pm at Martin Luther King Jr Civic Center Park on MLK Way between Alston and Center in Berkeley.
We will provide signs with images of Palestinian children who have been killed. We ask that you refrain from engaging with participants at the pro-Israel Rally.
