May 19, 2024 - Texas Statewide Protest
In commemoration of Nakba Day, people from across Texas will be convening at the State Capitol to demand an end to the ongoing genocide in Gaza, and declare that we will resist until return.
We will unite across all fronts and assert that we stand in solidarity with the student intifada as they continue the encampment movement despite dealing with violent state repression.
We stand firm in our demands - an end to the siege on Gaza, an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the release of all political prisoners, and an end to state and federal funding of the Zionist entity through our tax dollars.
Busses will be arranged from Houston, Dallas, and other cities.
Date: May 19, 2024
Time: 1 pm
