Silent Rally of Jews Saying “Not in Our Name,” Monday, 12.01.09, 5:30 PM, NYC


Monday, January 12 at 5:30 PM

in front of the Israeli Consulate

800 Second Avenue between 42nd and 43rd Streets

We are Jews who say “Not in Our Name” to the Israeli Government.

We ask you to stand with us as we call for:

  • an immediate end to the massacre of the Palestinian people
  • an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Israeli troops
  • an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza
  • immediate steps taken to end the Israeli occupation

We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, with our sisters and brothers in Israel who are bravely opposing the brutality of their government, and with all those around the world calling for justice and peace in the Middle East.  There will be no speakers at this event.  We will stand together in silence, holding up signs reiterating the points above.
