Join the international days of action against the Israeli occupation - stand up for human rights and justice.
 

This June, activists will be marking the 34th year of the Israeli occupation by a series of public actions in Israel, and cities throughout the world (see the full list below).

We invite you to join in solidarity with an event sponsored by the Coalition of Women for a Just Peace, in cooperation with like-minded organizations: A mass vigil of Women in Black, joined by men dressed in black on Friday, June 8, 2001, in West Jerusalem, Israel.

On or about that day, women and men from all over the world will hold their own "Women in Black" vigils that call for an immediate end to the occupation.
 

Vigils are planned in:

In Costa Rica, a "webcast vigil" will be held this Friday at noon, 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. (local time) by Feminist International Radio Endeavour (FIRE). Vigil participants from
all over the world can send in statements to be read on the air (fuegocr@racsa.co.cr),
and, that evening, can give live reports about how their vigils went (www.fire.or.cr).

Organizing your own vigil

Hold a solidarity vigil wherever you live. The principle is simple, and can be done by one person or a group: Wear black, hold signs that say "End the Israeli Occupation", and stand for one hour in a public location. You can hold this vigil at a time and place that is convenient for you.
 

The more vigils = the more impressive the media coverage = the more the political leadership around the world will get the message: This occupation is unacceptable. Period.

If you are planning to organize a vigil in your city, please contact Bat Shalom immediately at batshalo@netvision.net.il with the following information:
