*Mass March for Gaza*
Monday, August 11 at 5:30pm
City Hall Plaza, Boston
*Endorsements so far include: Boston Alliance for Water Justice, Boston
BDS, Jewish Voice for Peace-Boston, Jewish Women for Justice in
Israel/Palestine, United for Justice with Peace*

With over 1900 Palestinians killed already in the Israeli assault on Gaza,
please join us in a march of solidarity with the Palestinian people to
demonstrate against the US government's enabling role in the massacre,
including the $3 billion in aid every year as well as its unconditional
political support for the land siege and naval blockade that renders Gaza
as the world's largest "open air prison."

The march will also target Hewlett Packard (HP), one of the companies
complicit in the occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands, and
hence a target for the Palestinian called - and led - Boycott, Divestment
and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Besides providing numerous  services to the
IDF, HP developed and maintains the automated biometric access management
system that controls the movement of Palestinians and specifically
Palestinian workers through checkpoints in the West Bank and Gaza. Read
more about HP at http://wedivest.org/c/57/hp#.U-I9UfldXGA.

We will be gathering at City Hall Plaza. We will then move to the JFK
Federal Building, from where the rally and march begins around 5:30pm.
