Location Details
UC Berkeley, Wheeler Hall and universities accross the globe.
Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, there will be actions at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, San Jose State University, and San Francisco State University on April 9th in support of the Palestinian people. The American University in Beirut has also called for an international Universities' Solidarity Day with the Palestinian people. Please read their announcement below and join in protest on April 9th. The Universities' Solidarity Day with the Palestinian People In the midst of the brave uprising, intifada, of the Palestinian people and while the Israeli war machine has been escalating its aggression upon the Palestinian people, with crimes committed under the eyes of the whole world, silence is unbearable. Silence is a crime in this case. Many events have organized worldwide to support and show solidarity with Palestinian people throughout the past year and half, unfortunately their impact has not yet been as effective as it should be. We think that a coordinated event in universities across the globe can get the message through. The Palestinian Cultural Club at the American University in Beirut calls for a coordinated day of solidarity among as many universities as possible world wide, on April 9th, 2002. This date marks the 54th anniversary of themassacre of Deir Yassin. The title of this event is "The Universities'Solidarity Day with the Palestinian People" It is time to show the world what is really happening in Palestine. Media coverage essential for this to have an impact, as well as coordinating the activities. The proposed idea is to hold activities and events in universities, each according to its capabilities and characteristics, with one simple, common event: a minute of silence at 12:00 (Beirut time +2 GMT). We, the PCC at the American University of Beirut, are having the following activities. · Donation campaigns · A large exhibition regarding different aspects of the Palestinian cause. · A visual show presenting different films about Palestine. · Stands all over campus showing facts and pictures about the Palestinian suffering. · Other activities being discussed. We are also designing a logo for this so that it can be used by all participating universities, with the title mentioned above. With a combined effort we can make a difference. Thank you for contribution. Palestinian Cultural Club at the American University in Beirut For more information and to coordinate: Saifedean Ammous: Saifedean@h... tel: 009613904362
