LA Protest Condemning Gaza Holocaust








Photos courtesy of Br. Omar Zarka

A little over a year and a half ago, I remember being at this exact same place protesting along with a hundred other people the Israeli massacres in Lebanon (during the July 2006 war). Last Friday, it was a protest against the Israeli genocide in Gaza. What next?

Overall, it's great that so many people came out.

If you were at the protest, please share your comments and thoughts. How did you think the protest want? How was it like to be there? What could be done different next time? What else can be done to help our brothers and sisters in Gaza (and elsewhere)?

I love that these pictures are posted. I wish I could be there, but I think me writing op eds and giving talks etc, makes up for a few hours spent protesting. Thanks!!!

I think we need to be constantly doing all of the above. But yes Affad, given you were at CAIR "working" you are excused from this one.

We'll see you (and your brother who needs a lecture?) on the 15th insha'Allah!
