Protest planned at Vancouver Art Gallery in response to Israeli attacks
Supporters of the Palestinian Youth Movement will gather at 2 p.m. today (November 18) at the Vancouver Art Gallery to protest against Israel's deadly air strikes on Gaza.
Israel has defended its attacks, which reportedly killed 17 civilians today, as a reasonable response against rocket attacks from Gaza.
One Israeli attack obliterated a building in Gaza City, according to a Gaza health worker, killing four kids and four women.
"In an effort to amplify our outrage against Operation Pillar of Defense and support the people of Gaza, the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) urges all members and allies to demonstrate, protest, and hold sit-ins in as many cities as possible on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18th," the group stated in a release to the media. "Let the world hear our indignation to end this brutal invasion! We urge all people of conscience from around the world to take to the streets and protest against this heinous offensive being launched by the imperialist Zionist state against the people of Gaza. We implore you to stand up and resist this reprehensible act of aggression against our people. Do not let one more Palestinian life be lost."
