Saturday, 7:15 to 8:30 p.m.
After the recent Gaza disaster, international unity for non-violent actions that transcend, race, ethic and national origins becomes even more urgent and . . . necessary. Those events reflect a manifestation of the grim racist, ethnic cleansing ideologies advocated by a recent surge of demagogues that have gripped the world including the Holy Land, the epicentre of world conflict and potential world peace. As such, it is essential to build coalitions with activists worldwide, linked to Holy Land activists to fight this trend, to enlighten the world by bringing it to a place of equality and justice and at the same time pushing the reactionary demagogues back into obsolescence.
