"Israel, Israel, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide": Bay Area Solidarity with Palestine | AmericaWakieWakie
Today thousands marched in downtown San Francisco in protest of Israel’s on-going massacre and occupation of Palestinians in Gaza.
In the past two weeks violence perpetrated by the Israeli apartheid state has escalated with the onset of a ground offensive into Gaza, thus far claiming over 420 Palestinian lives — 80 percent of which are civilians, not the alleged target Hamas — and injuring 3,000 more. In addition, tens of thousands have been displaced but with effectively no where to go in the border-sealed stretch of land being bombarded.
Bay Area residents took to the streets to demand in unison with occupied Palestine an end to US aid to Israel and the end to Israeli apartheid. To honor those whose lives have been taken protesters participated in a die-in, the practice of lying or sitting down to simulate the people killed already. Small boxes draped in the Palestinian flag symbolized the children killed.
Protesters chanted “Israel, Israel, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” as well as “Free, free Palestine!”
