Birmingham for Palestine

Published Jun 24, 2010 8:00 PM

About 35 people met in the Five Points South neighborhood of Birmingham, Ala., on June 19 to show solidarity with the besieged and invaded people of Palestine and to protest the Freedom Flotilla massacre. The demonstration lasted from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. without incident. Some of the chants were “Free, free Palestine!,” “1-2-3-4, stop the killing, stop the war! 5-6-7-8, Israel is a terrorist state!” and “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”

The demonstration was sponsored by Birmingham Students for a Democratic Society, Birmingham FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together) and the Birmingham Peace Project.
