Gather at 10 am, Caravan at 11 am
Western Ave and Martin Luther King Blvd
Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, is co-organizing a Palestine Contingent at the annual Martin Luther King Day protest! Join us in Los Angeles for a car caravan — gather at 10 am and get ready for the caravan at 11 am.
The event will include floats, music, rap and more. Bring your Palestinian flags and show them on your car as we stand together for social justice and collective liberation!
This year Martin Luther King Jr. Day will begin a new chapter on the themes and participants who reflect the messages of social justice and against war and poverty. This year no police, ICE or military representatives or contingents are invited. The latest killing of the 14-yr-old Valentina Orellana-Pera:lta is just one more horrible example of the terror brought by entities like the LAPD against Black and Brown communities.
The LAPD and Sheriffs Dept have yet to apologize or give any indication of stopping the racist brutality and killings that continue to rise – they should not be celebrated … instead let’s build on King’s vision.
