PALAD LEADS 250-PERSON RALLY AGAINST ISRAELI OCCUPATION:
To mark the 50th Anniversary of Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territories the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip and also the Syrian Golan Heights, Pal Ad led a coalition of human rights groups in a rally. With about 250 people in attendance, the rally began in front of Cambridge City Hall where participants listened to four passionate speakers who highlighted the abuses Palestinians living under Israel’s occupation endure.
The crowd listened attentively as four amazing Palestinian women spoke about their thoughts and experiences regarding the occupation. Then we took to the streets! Marching from the Cambridge City Hall to Harvard Square, the crowd yelled chants including “Not another nickel, not another dime, no more money for Israel’s crimes!” and “From Palestine to Mexico, these border walls have got to go!”
