GAZA protest, MON. 4pmFriends,
As this message is being sent, it is reported that the Israeli ground forces have cut Gaza in half, isolating the inhabitants of Gaza City from any escape from the military ground invasion.
Late Saturday night, the US blocked the the UN Security Council from passing a resolution calling for an immediate cease fire, giving a green light to Israel to continue its war crimes against the Palestinian people.
Over the past week of intense aerial bombardment, thousands of Palestinians have been severely injured and more than 400 have been killed. The destruction of government, educational, religious and civilian buildings has been widespread and the population suffers from lack of electricity, food, water and medicines.
Across the globe, every day, thousands of people have come out onto the streets in protest, demanding an immediate end to the military attacks and the lifting of the economic siege of Gaza.
Yesterday in Atlanta, more than 500 people massed in front of CNN, took to the streets in a spirited march and rallied at Woodruff Park.
Then, the protesters, determined to have their message heard, again filled Marietta St and returned to the CNN building to continue the demonstration for another half hour.
This action was preceeded by protests at the Israeli Consulate on Sunday, Dec. 28 and Tuesday, Dec.30.
