Stop the Israeli Attack on Gaza!

Peace Fresno sent out a call for a Candlelight Vigil in “protest of Israel’s crimes against humanity.” The demo was held at Shaw and Blackstone Avenues (probably the busiest street corner in Fresno). The call to action went out at the last minute, it was raining, but hundreds of people came out in support of the Palestinian people and to protest Israel’s attack on Gaza. Many of the demonstrators came from the Fresno Arab community. The event was supported by the two Mosques in Fresno and the Islamic Cultural Center. The crowd was enthusiastic and many of the cars driving by honked in support. Photos of the Friday, January 2, 2009 demo are below.
