“The Road Map”
Bush, other war criminals and selected representatives are trying to
crush the resistance of the Palestinian People with such propaganda like “road
map” to peace. The “road map” will not lead to any peace but in fact to more
destruction. We refuse to allow the Zionist Entity to higher it’s level of
apartheid and genocide, while calling it “the road map”.
A panel discussion with:

Join us as we remember all those who have been killed, injured, imprisoned or displaced, for all the homes demolished and lives destroyed, for the thousands of olive trees plucked from their roots like the farmers who care for them. For all the rights denied and the culture erasure; to protest crimes against humanity; and to insist that Palestine will be FREE.
