*The Gaza Freedom March *


December 27th marks the one-year anniversary of Israel's invasion of The 
Gaza Strip. For 22 days at the turning of the year, the residents of 
Gaza---half of them children---were subject to a terrifying assault 
known to the Israelis as "Operation Cast Lead". More than 1300 Gazans 
were killed in the attacks, among them at least 70% civilian and 
approximately 300 children.  Numerous illegal targets were destroyed, 
including mosques, hospitals, and United Nations facilities. The people 
of Gaza--whose borders are controlled by land, air and sea--were trapped 
during the onslaught within the one of the most densely populated areas 
on earth. The economic blockade imposed on Gaza predates the invasion 
and continues to this day. Today, residents of Gaza are still trapped: 
with their civilization in ruins around them, their families injured or 
dead, severe shortages of water, electricity, medicines, and food affect 
every aspect of Palestinian life.

*The historic Gaza Freedom March* *will take place on December 31^st , 
2009; it is the Palestinian people's non-violent answer to the 
continuing devastation wreaked upon them by the* *invasion and the 
inhumane blockade.  Joined by internationals from around the world, tens 
of thousands of Gazans will march peacefully to demand an end to the 
illegal siege.*

Benefit for the Gaza Freedom March * Suggested donation $10.00 * 
Refreshments will be served.
