Candlelight Vigil for Gaza at the White House

Candlelight Vigil for Gaza at the White House

July 28th, 2014

Washington, DC: The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) calls on its members to partake in a silent candlelight vigil at the White House on Wednesday, July 30th at 7pm in honor of Palestinians who have lost their lives in Israel's current massacre of Gaza.

The ADC, in conjunction with the Arab American Institute, American Federation of Ramallah Palestine, Bethlehem Association, Coalition of Palestinian American Organizations, and Network of Arab-American Professionals-DC, will hold a silent candlelight vigil in front of the White House to mourn the innocent souls taken by Israel's indiscriminate violence. As of this morning, over 1000 Palestinians have been killed, with thousands more wounded or unjustly arrested by Israeli Occupation Forces. In a report, the United Nations estimates that 80% of those killed were civilians, women and children.

In this time of anger, frustration, and mourning, we ask that our community comes together to honor and mourn those who lost their lives due to the U.S. government's continued support of Israel's illegal occupation, blockade, and massacre. If you are unable to attend, we will be tweeting using the hashtag #LetChildrenLive
