Dorchester Square, north-east side of Peel and Rene-Levesque Metro Peel

Please come out and show your solidarity for the people of Lebanon and Gaza, who are currently under brutal attack from the Israeli war machine! We will be staging a 24 hour presence outside the Israeli consulate. Standing together in the shadow of empire, we will show our united resistance!

We will begin immediately following the regular Friday vigil on Friday (noon-1pm), and end just prior to the International Day of Action (July 22, 2pm, Peel and Rene-Levesque).

Please come out for 1, 2, or 24 hours!  Participants are especially encouraged to stay during the overnight hours, to maintain a constant presence.

–> Featuring Lebanese films, music, free food, speakers, an information kiosk, and photos.

–> Please bring your blankets, banners, and candles.
