Stop the Massacre of Palestinians!

Tuesday, December 30: National Day of Action
Emergency Demonstrations on Tuesday, December 30 and other days (listed 
The *ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom, Free Palestine 
Alliance, National Council of Arab Americans, and* *Al-Awda, 
International Palestine Right to Return Coalition are calling for 
Tuesday, December 30 to be a National Day of Action *to show solidarity 
with the Palestinian people in Gaza and to demand an immediate end to 
the murderous attacks carried out by the Israeli military against the 
people of Gaza.

*In Washington, D.C., there will be a demonstration at the State 
Department at 4:30 pm. Demonstrations will also be held in cities around 
the country. See below for an initial list.* If there is a demonstration 
in your city, email the details to info at answercoalition.org 
<mailto:info at answercoalition.org> so it can be posted on the ANSWER 
Coalition website and listed in any future emails.


Hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza have been massacred and wounded today 
as Israel has launched a massive bombing campaign against the people of 
Gaza. The bombing rampage took place as thousands of Palestinian 
children were in the streets on their way home from school. Palestinian 
parents were running frantically in the streets looking for their 
children as U.S.-provided F-16s and Apache helicopters rained down more 
than 100 bombs and missiles on Gaza.

The U.S.-backed Israeli Occupation Force destroyed every security 
station in Gaza. AFP reported: "There was no space left in the morgue 
and bodies were piled up in the emergency room and in the corridors, as 
many of the wounded screamed in pain."

Because of the U.S.-backed Israeli blockade and strangulation of the 
people of Gaza for the past 18 months there is little or no medicine to 
treat the wounded, electricity for hospitals, or food or clean water for 
much of the population.

An Israeli military spokesperson said, "The operation is 'only just 
beginning'." The Israeli Defense Ministry said in a statement: "The 
action will continue and will widen as much as is demanded according to 
the evaluation of the situation by the high command of the army."
