Join the Palestine Freedom walk!
Across the United States in almost 30 cities Palestine Freedom Walks are taking place on October 10, 2009. The Palestine Freedom Walks will be silent marches, on behalf of an equitable U.S. policy toward Palestine that advances freedom for the Palestinian people.
The Palestine Freedom Walks have two major goals:
First, to raise awareness about the situation in Palestine among Americans who will take part in, sponsor and observe the walks, including your family members, friends, neighbors and community members.
And second, to raise funds for a powerful AAPER online advertising campaign calling for freedom for the Palestinian people (see the ads at http://www.aaper.org/freepalestineads).
Like the Freedom Walks during the Civil Rights Movement as well as AIDS Walks and Breast Cancer Walks before them, the Palestine Freedom Walks can have a major impact across the United States. But for that to happen, we need your full participation. So please join a Palestine Freedom Walk for early October to show your fellow Americans that the Palestinian people deserve the same freedom that Americans hold dear. The first step is up to you...
