Victoria Vigil for the Gaza Freedom Flotilla
Global Day of Action: 11 am Saturday, June 5

On Saturday, June 5, human rights and community organizations will mobilize to join an emergency Global BDS Day of Action called by the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC). In Victoria, we will hold a vigil and procession in memory of those murdered on the Freedom Flotilla bringing humanitarian aid to the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip.

The rally and vigil will take place:
Date: Saturday, June 5
Time: 11:00 a.m.
Location: Centennial Square (near fountain) -Off Douglas and Pandora, Victoria, BC

June 5 also marks the 43rd anniversary of the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Our action aims to draw the world’s attention to Israel’s continuing illegal occupation, its refusal to abide by international law, and its massacre of innocent humanitarian workers. We'll also be standing in solidarity with local hero Kevin Neish, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara, the Turkish vessel that was stormed by Israeli commandos.
