Candlelight Vigil for Activists Killed By Israel on Humanitarian Aid Mission

Tuesday, June 1, 2010
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.

BDS action this Saturday, April 24th

Demonstration on Sat. April 24 to protest  sales by ULTA of Ahava cosmetics, made in an illegal settlement using materials stolen from Occupied Palestine.

Saturday April 24 –  NOON to 1:15 – Assemble on the sidewalk on the north side of the Gateway Shopping Center, which runs parallel to the Capitol of TX Hwy and connects the frontage road of 183 with Stonelake Blvd.

“AHAVA” means “LOVE” in Hebrew but there is no love in Occupation!


*AHAVA cosmetics are taken from an illegal Israeli settlement next to the Dead Sea
*The UN has declared Israeli settlements in Palestine a violation of international law
*AHAVA violates the Fourth Geneva Convention by exploiting Palestine’s natural resources
*Buying Ahava cosmetics contributes to the suffering of the Palestinian people
*We ask you to boycott ULTA until it removes AHAVA products from its stores

On April 17, activists from the Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights, Code Pink, and the Palestine Solidarity Committee of UT carried out a successful in-store action in the Ulta Sunset Valley store followed by a picket on the sidewalk along Hwy. 290.  We had previously asked the Ulta stores to remove the products & they refused.  Now we turn to the Ulta store at Gateway

Don’t Shop at ULTA!
Don’t Buy Occupation!
