Adalah NY Rally for Gaza in Foley Square

57 views 2 days ago
NEW YORK, July 24--One of the organizers from Adalah-NY, a major propronent of the Boycott Divest Sanctions movement, addresses Palestinian supporters during a rally at Foley Square as part of the National Day of Action for Gaza. The purpose of the rally and subsequent march to City Hall was to express in no uncertain terms to Mayor de Blasio and the 12 members of the City Council that New Yorkers do not support Israel's military attack on Gaza civilians since July 8, causing over 800 fatalities, including 200 civilians, 141,000 displaced persons thousands of injured and radical destruction and degradation of Gaza's infrastucture. New Yorkers want to see an immediate end to the 7-year siege and blockade of Gaza, which compelled Gazans to build tunnels so that they could import food, medecine and construction supplies to Gaza. The blockade has imposed intolerable trade and travel districtions on Gaza residents, most of whom were already refugees.--Liza Béar . For more info see +972.com and electronic intifada. Show less
