2-4 PM - Peace Vigil for a Palestinian State Alongside Israel
Third St. Promenade at Santa Monica Blvd.
Join Jews for Peace between Israelis and Palestinians (J- PIP) in a vigil to support President Obama’s goal of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
As American Jews, we recognize that 42 years of occupation and ruling over 4 million Palestinians against their will, Has not given Israelis peace and security, and never will.
Israel and its people's desire for peace and security can only be achieved, when the Palestinians also have peace and security in their own sovereign and viable state alongside Israel.
We call upon President Obama to do all in his power to ensure that this peace vision will be implemented as soon as possible. First steps include:
· Settlement expansion on the West bank and in East Jerusalem halted.
· Settlement outposts demolished.
· Checkpoints and roadblocks that do not contribute to Israel’s security removed.
· Gaza blockade lifted; and crossings open.
· Harassment of Gaza fishermen ended
· Rockets attack on Israeli civilians from Gaza stopped.
J PIP will supply pro-peace, nonviolent, non-defamatory signs - We welcome everyone who shares J-PIP's vision of a sovereign and viable Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Support this important VIGIL. Info: here
ACTION - Write to President Obama in support of his pressure on Israel for a full settlement construction freeze with no exceptions.
