Milwaukee, WI - 75 people rallied outside the Federal Building here June 1, condemning Israel's deadly attack on the Freedom Flotilla.

The flotilla of more than 600 people was headed to occupied Gaza to deliver food and humanitarian aid when Israeli forces attacked the boats in international waters, killing between 10-20 activists.

Milwaukee's Arab community, Students for a Democratic Society and anti-war activists organized the emergency rally to condemn the Israeli attacks and to honor the courageous activists who gave their lives to break the U.S.-backed blockade on Gaza.

Another demonstration is planned for June 4 at 2:30 p.m. outside the federal building on 3rd and Wisconsin Avenue.
