Gaza remains in crisis after last summers 50-day Israeli assault which killed 2,200 Palestinians, including 50 children. On the Israeli side, 73 people were killed, all but six of them soldiers.  A year later, none of the 12,000 homes destroyed in Gaza have been rebuilt, due in large part to the ongoing Israeli blockade. Unemployment in Gaza now stands at 43 percent, the highest in the world. 

Join in a vigil to show solidarity and love for the people in Gaza. We will speak out against U.S. complicity in the massacre and raise awareness about the continuing humanitarian crisis in Gaza. We will add our voice in support of the international movement for boycott and divestment from companies profiting from the illegal occupation of Palestine.
