Philly in DC

Thanks to all who came with SUSTAIN, Jewish Voice for Peace, and other Philly groups to protest 40 years of Israeli occupation. The bus sold out and we had to get two more vans at the last minute to accommodate all of Philadelphia's energy!

About 5000 people rallied on the Capitol and marched to the White House, carrying messages that demanded an end to the occupation; protested U.S. support for the occupation through military aid and foreign policy; and mourned not just 40 years of occupation but 59 years of displacement, since the Nakba.
