PEOPLE OF CONSCIENCE ACROSS THE COUNTRY SUPPORTING THE OPPRESSED

Annual Al-Quds Day Rally for a Just Peace in Palestine and for the Oppressed Worldwide

Washington D.C., Friday July 25, 2014 @ 4:00 PM (Dupont Circle)

Al-Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem, the Holy Land. Yawm-al Quds or al-Quds Day is a day of solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people in their struggle against the Zionist-Apartheid system of Israel. Al-Quds Day also extends beyond Palestine to support all oppressed people in their struggles across the world. All over the world rallies and marches are held on this day, the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan, in order to pledge solidarity with those seeking peace through justice.  People of good conscience and from diverse backgrounds come together in support of this noble cause.

As former United States President Jimmy Carter has stated in his book, “Palestine:  Peace Not Apartheid”:

“When Israel does occupy this territory deep within the West Bank, and connects the 200-or-so settlements with each other, with a road, and then prohibits the Palestinians from using that road, or in many cases even crossing the road, this perpetrates even worse instances of apartness, or apartheid, than we witnessed even in South Africa.”

This day is an opportunity to stand in solidarity with the oppressed in their struggles all over the world, from Palestine to Iraq, from Congo to Honduras and from China to right here in our own backyards in the United States. On July 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM, join with community leaders and activists from across the northeastern United States for this historical protest in our nation’s capital at Dupont Circle and pledge your solidarity with those seeking a just peace in Palestine and around the world.

    We’re currently unaware of an al-Quds Day rally for the Boston area. We found this event that took place several days ago. Maybe the organizer has information about further rallies/actions.

    Boston’s nearest al-Quds Day rally is in NYC. It looks like it’ll be huge.
