 For latest information about the ongoing bombings of Gaza by Israel, from Democracy Now (http://www.democracynow.org/) this morning:
Thousands of Gazans have fled their homes amidst a relentless Israeli bombing campaign that’s now killed more than 165 people, most of them civilians, since it began a week ago. The United Nations estimates more than 80 percent of the dead are civilian, of whom 20 percent are children — at least 36 dead. At least 1,200 Palestinians have been wounded, nearly two-thirds women and children. More than 940 homes have reportedly been severely damaged or destroyed, some 400,000 people are without electricity, and 17,000 people are displaced.

Remember Al-Nakba: Protest Israeli Occupation

Al-Nakba means "Day of Catastrophe" and more importantly it refers to the day May 15th, 1948 when Israeli settlers first colonized Palestinian lands, violently forcing Palestinians from their homes.

Join us May 15th 2014 as we protest the ongoing occupation of Palestine, specifically the United State's military aid to Israel every year to the tune of $3.1 Billion.

We also call attention the repression of antiwar and solidarity activists here in the United States. Rasmea Odeh has been the target of the Department of Homeland Security. Her case is important because she has been an award winning, active member of the Arab communities in Chicago, yet the US government wants her gone and is calling her immigration status in question after forty years.

We gather at the Wallace Bennett Federal Building at 6:00 on May 15th. There will be speeches given by members of the following group:

-Committee to Stop FBI Repression

-Freedom Road Socialist Organization
http://www.frso.org/
-Utahns for a Just Peace in the Holy Land
