We call upon you, the friends of Israel to join with the Israeli people in a tent protest in Woodley Park. Be a part of it on Sunday August 7,2011 12pm-6pm at Woodley Park, where we will be joining in solidarity with the protests that have sprung up in Israel in the past two weeks. We want to say to our brothers and sisters protesting in Israel say: “You are not alone”.
Israelis in the hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets across all political spectrums to voice their frustrations towards the government because of the cost of living and the lack of affordable housing in Israel. The focus of these protests have been on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv, where tents are now set up across the Boulevard of fancy stores and cafes.
It is important for the more than 200,000 Israelis living in Southern California and their American Jewish friends who support the people of Israel to show solidarity with the suffering Israeli public. We need to stand as one people “Am Echad"and let our voices be heard.
This is a unique opportunity to show the Israeli public that “we care and stand with them” We invite you to come with your family and friends and invite you to express yourself freely by bringing tents, signs, guitars etc.
Please share this message and information with your friends and family and see you Sunday!
