Protest in Milwaukee for Freedom Flotilla
(Fight Back! News/Staff)

Milwaukee, WI - Over 200 people rallied here, for the second time this week, to protest Israel's massacre of the participants in Freedom Flotilla - a mission to bring aid to Gaza.

The Arab community called for the rally which brought out dozens of Palestinian families, anti-war groups, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlān (MEChA). The continuing protests demand that the U.S. stop all aid to Israel, which amounts to $7 million each day. Both Muslim and Jewish speakers called for an immediate end to Israel's blockade of Gaza and an end to the U.S.-backed occupation of Palestine.
