Procession of Mourners to Raise Black Flag at Bil'in!

This Friday, July 21st at 1pm, the Bil'in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements along with Israeli and international supporters will carry a massive 20-meter black flag in a silent protest to the site of the Apartheid Wall. They will demand an answer from Israel and its military for the question "Is this the world we want for our children?". The mourner's march will proceed to the wall where the demonstrators will hold a minute of silence and read prayers in memory of the dead in Lebanon and Gaza.

The procession will be followed by an open meeting of Palestinians, Israelis, and internationals to discuss the ongoing bloodshed.

The event also signifies the launch of a world-wide poster campaign against the ongoing violence. "Signed, sealed, and delivered - from Israeli children to Lebanese & Gazan children" read the posters that supporters will unveil alongside photos of Israeli children signing artillery shells and the destruction they rain upon innocent civilians. July 24th, 1pm at Bil'in Village.

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian-led nonviolent movement to end the Israeli occupation of the West bank and Gaza Strip.
