Time: 8:00pm – 10:00pm
Location: In front of the Capital building
We will be holding a candlelight vigil in remembrance of those killed in Israel’s attack on the flotilla trying to reach Gaza with humanitarian aid. Israel attacked the ships in international waters on unarmed civilians from around the world. At least 9 people have been killed in the attack and dozens of others have been wounded.
Stand with us as we remember those who have acted with courage and love for the Palestinian people and in solidarity as the Gaza Flotilla continues in defending itself from Israeli attacks.
If you have a poem or a few words for those on the Flotilla or those in Gaza, feel free to share it with us tonight.
We will meet in front of the Texas Capital building on 11th Street at 8:00pm, June 1st.
