Starting at the West Lawn of the Capitol
4:00 March (From Capitol Hill to the Ellipse)
New Jersey Solidarity – Activists for the Liberation of Palestine and Al-Awda New York (the Palestine Right to Return Coalition) call on Right to Return activists to join us in Washington D.C. on June 10th to march together in a “Liberation and Return” contingent.
While the organizers/sponsors of this mass rally and march are emphasizing the commemoration of 40 years of occupation in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights, we must also commemorate the 60th year of the occupation which began with Al-Nakba in 1948. Solidarity with the Palestinian liberation struggle must include solidarity with Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, Palestinians in Palestine ’48, and Palestinians in exile.
Over 6 million refugees have the Right to Return to their original lands and properties, and we must not limit our discussion of Palestine to a subsequent attack that took place 19 years after the invasion that forced over 750,000 Palestinians into exile.
Thousands of activists will be marching on Washington D.C. on Sunday, June 10th. We must be there to raise the banner of Liberation and Return. Join us to carry Right to Return signs, carry Palestinian flags and chant for Return and Liberation!
When the call is made to line up for marching, meet us near the tabling area to the Left when facing the capitol.
Groups in the New York area are organizing buses from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Please get in touch with us if you need more information on this.
