US organizations to hold march in Washington DC protesting of Israel’s settler-colonialism
RAMALLAH, Friday, May 28, 2021 (WAFA) – US organizations are scheduled on Saturday to hold a march in Washington DC in protest of Israel’s settler-colonialism, apartheid and military occupation.
The pro-human rights grassroots organizations have issued online calls for mobilization for the National March for Palestine, which will be the largest protest in U.S. history supporting the Palestinian cause and is organized by dozens of Palestinian, interfaith, and various civil rights organizations and will take place at the Lincoln Memorial.
Meanwhile, Faizan Syed, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called the US to end its support of Israel that is “illegally occupying and brutalizing Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank”.
“We are proud to be part of the growing movement in America that is calling attention to crimes committed by Israel and working to end U.S. support for those crimes,” he added.
“I am a proud American-Palestinian, and I refuse to have my tax dollars fund illegal Israeli settlements, construction of the apartheid wall, human rights violations, and the killing of Palestinian children,” said Fadya Risheq, organizer of the bus delegation who will be traveling to D.C. “I’m going to D.C. to let my government know that it must immediately stop its support of Israel that continues to commit crimes against Palestinians”.
