To Mark the 2nd Anniversary of the Gaza Massacre

When: Friday January 21, 2011 at 3 PM @ Federal Building, 11000 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90024

The holidays have arrived and people all over the world are celebrating with their
loved ones. Yet, this time of the year symbolizes a period of continuing terror and
constant uncertainty for Palestinians imprisoned in the Gaza Strip, which remains
today in its fourth year under a criminal siege.

Two years ago, the state of 'Israel' launched a 22-day brutal and criminal attack on
1.5 million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip. This attack began on December 27,
2008 and continued until January 18, 2009. The state of 'Israel' sealed off all the
borders of Gaza to prevent Palestinians from fleeing to safety. The Gaza Strip was
transformed into a slaughterhouse leaving 1417 Palestinians dead (including 352
children) & 5300 permanently wounded.

With the intensifying recent Israeli attacks, publicized threats and leaked plans of
another major assault on Gaza, we will be holding a demonstration followed by a
candlelight vigil on this the 2nd anniversary of the 22-day massacre. We will demand
an End to the Siege and Attacks on Gaza, and will remember and honor all the martyrs
and the victims who were injured and terrorized. We will also stand in solidarity
and celebrate the resilience and bravery of the Palestinian people in Gaza.


The demonstration and candlelight vigil will take place on Friday, January 21
starting at 3 PM @ Federal Building, 11000 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90024.
