CHICAGO, IL — Muslim Congress will hold events in Chicago, Illinois to commemorate the International Day of Al-Quds.
Al-Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem and its environs, the Holy Land. The International Day of Al-Quds is a day of solidarity with the oppressed innocent civilian Palestinians in their struggle against the racist oppressive Zionist-Apartheid Regime (Israel).
Al-Quds Day events are held in cities across the world including many cities in the US, Canada and UK. Muslim Congress is currently coordinating an effort to organize peaceful Al-Quds Day events across various cities in the US.
Since July 8th, 2014, five hundred and seventy Palestinians have been killed by Israeli strikes and attacks. Three thousand three hundred and fifty people have been injured, thus far. These numbers include countless women and children. Â We condemn the Israeli aggression in Palestine and demand the Israeli occupation of Palestine to end. The Palestinian people have the right to freely live on their land.
We are gathering at the Daley Center, 50 W. Washington Street, Chicago, Illinois, between the hours of 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. on Friday, July 25th, 2014 to protest the Israeli occupation of Palestine.Â This event will highlight the plight of the Palestinian people.
Lets stand with all the humans of conscience including Jews, Christians and Muslims to show support for the innocent civilian victims of global zionism, imperialism, occupation, racism and oppression, for the sake of haqq (truth).
