Over one year after the Great March of Return protests began at the Gaza-Israel border, Palestinians in Gaza are still demanding their internationally-recognized right to return to the homes they were displaced from in 1948. The protests have continued at the border every Friday, and Israeli snipers have continued to meet them with excessive force, resulting in hundreds of deaths and thousands more injuries since the Great March began on March 30, 2018. Join us to stand up for human rights – bring your own sign or borrow one of ours.
