The people of the Middle East face monumental economic challenges. Revolutions have started in Tuisia, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Iran, and sooner or later the entire region will face similar struggles. The 'cultural' Middle East region, including North Africa, is feeling the sting of sanctions with shortages, unemployment, layoffs and inflation fears that are creating a widening gap between the regime and the people.
The point of the protest is to make this a world-wide issue to be dealt with internationally. We must make a visible effort in America to show our continued support for peace in the Middle East.
Since there is another demonstration at 2:30 to support the Iraqis and their revolution (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/02/17/18672357.php), you can come earlier if you can and participate. If not, and I know alot of us have work which is why I was willing to hold it at 6:00pm, show up at the Embarcadero Center @ 6 and I will have signs for all of us to hold.
