Join the ANSWER Coalition and the southern California Palestinian community in Los Angeles for a solidarity protest with the people of Palestine. For the past three weeks, an escalation of Israeli military and settler violence against Palestinians has resulted in the death of more than 30 and injury to over 1300.
The Israeli government has intensified its attacks on protesters by giving free reign to Israeli occupation soldiers to shoot live ammunition at Palestinians resulting in over 100 Palestinian protesters being shot. Israeli state officials have further encouraged the increase in roaming bands of armed settlers who have instigated the majority of violence in Palestinian neighborhoods.
The terrorist tactics employed by Israeli government and settlers against Palestinians and increase in settlement construction in violation of international law is evidence of the true nature of the apartheid regime. The entrenched racist and colonialist government can only be defeated by a mass movement of Palestinians and their allies throughout the world demanding an end to to the genocide of Palestinians and a complete dismantling of the apartheid system.
