Albany: Rally to end Israeli air attacks against Gaza, and possible invasion

Date : 30 December 2008       From : 12:00pm    iCal Google Calendar
Category : Peace / War Location : 12210


Event Description :
Press release from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee: "Reports indicate that the Israeli air strikes over the past two days have killed 330 people in Gaza and have left over 1450 more injured, almost 300 of which are in critical condition. The UN estimates that 55% of those killed are children under the age of 18. These strikes come after several weeks of a tight blockade which left many of Gaza's 1.5-million inhabitants without sufficient food, water, fuel or medicine. The population of Gaza is 2/3 refugee and more than half are under the age of 16. The UN has listed Gaza as the most densely populated area in the world with a population density that is higher than that of Manhattan in New York City."
