Vigil for Palestine

Friday,  November 6th, 11:45 am – 12:15 pm
NYU Vanderbilt Courtyard
40 Washington Square S

The purpose of the vigil is to stand in solidarity with oppressed populations in Palestine which are currently living under occupation. In addition to the hundreds of children and thousands of Palestinian civilians who were killed last year, we are horrified by recent extra-judicial killings on Palestinian land. We hope that the vigil will shed light on human suffering in Palestine.

We will hold signs, remember those who have been killed by Israeli forces, and oppose the culture of dehumanization of Palestinians and the silencing of minority voices which have become pervasive on US campuses and in our own community.
