Afterwards, a representative will present our statement and its accompanying report to Mr. Barrow.

Broadcast of Film “A World not Ours” on Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

The PBS documentary film series POV is providing the film “A World not Ours” to affiliated stations.

Ain el-Helweh (literally “Sweet Spring”), set up in 1948, is the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon with more than 70,000 people.

Palestine Solidarity Vigil, Fri, Aug 8, 4:30pm

Important Tips:

1. Don’t park in the parking lots of nearby businesses. In the neighborhood west of 15th St, street parking is allowed. Park there and walk to the intersection. If you are carpooling, the driver can drop you off in a parking lot and then go park in a legal spot.

2. All signs should reflect the demands, methods and tone of the CSRA Peace Alliance: suspend US aid to Israel, end violence, lift siege on Gaza. The CSRA Peace Alliance is nonviolent in tone and action and does not endorse or advocate any violence. If you are not able to create your own sign, organizers should also have signs.

3. The intersection has 4 corners. Spread out evenly among the 4 corners.

4. Keep a safe distance from the street to avoid collisions with vehicles and don’t obstruct pedestrians using the sidewalks.

5. Do not distract drivers by initiating any conversation with them.

6. If anybody says negative things to you, it is best to ignore them. Contact rally organizers if you see any difficult situation developing.
