It might snow and it’ll be cold, but nobody said standing up for what right, literally, would always be easy or comfortable. But it is important.
The Cincinnati Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is organizing a rally for Gaza on the corner of Ludlow and Clifton avenues to do just that: stand up for what’s right. Cincinnatians acknowledging and protesting the inhumane treatment of the Palestinian people in Gaza is the point.
Palestinians are suffering from the lack of every basic human need with no electricity, clean water, food and supplies. This is a call on Israel to end the siege. Can't make it to the rally? Contact your elected representatives.
The rally is today from 4:00 to 5:30 in Clifton.
Why does CAIRE care? According to their Web site:
“The Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group. Established in 1994 as a non-profit, grassroots civil rights organization, CAIR is dedicated to presenting an Islamic perspective on issues of importance to the American public. In offering that perspective, CAIR seeks to empower the Muslim community in America through political and social activism.”
So grab a scarf and some gloves, knock off work a little early and add your voice.
