Families in Solidarity with Palestine
November 13, 2023 - 12:13 pm
In Gaza, Israeli attacks have killed 8,000 women and children (70% of fatalities). Today, the two largest hospitals in Gaza have stopped functioning as they’ve run out of fuel and are surrounded by Israeli forces.
Meanwhile, yesterday, 300-400 hundred people gathered in Seattle’s Columbia Park for a Ceasefire march around the block and rally for families and children. Participants sang songs, painted murals and prayer flags for Palestine, and wrote postcards addressed to state elected officials to demand a ceasefire.
Listen to some sounds and voices from the event. You may hear the rain in some of the clips.
A longer highlight of this event will broadcast tomorrow on KBCS during the Grit at 7 am.
