The ANSWER Coalition, along with many other organizations and individuals, is co-sponsoring and organizing for emergency protests taking place in Washington, D.C., and around the country to denounce the Israeli military massacre of activists on a Gaza aid convoy. At least 19 international activists were killed by Israel, with dozens injured. The death toll may rise.

In an act of piracy and a blatant violation of international law, the Israeli government has committed a cold-blooded massacre on the high seas against a group of courageous individuals whose only crime was to extend a hand of solidarity to the besieged and blockaded people in Gaza.

The Gaza aid flotilla is made up of seven ships carrying 700 people and bringing medical, construction and school supplies to besieged Palestinians in Gaza. It was attacked in international waters by 14 Israeli ships. Heavily armed Israeli commandos dropped onto the ships from helicopters and opened fire on the activists.

Gaza has been blockaded by Israel since 2007 with full backing by the U.S. government. The blockade is a brutal form of collective punishment aimed at strangling the Palestinian people. Since coming to office, the Obama administration has continued the enormous funding to Israel allowing the continued siege of Gaza, the occupation and expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, and Israel’s non-stop war against all of the Palestinian people. President Obama has promised at least $30 billion in military aid to Israel over the next 10 years.

Come out to these protests to condemn this outrageous massacre and call for an immediate end of the siege of Gaza.
