Sderot Rally for Hope: Stop Targeting Civillians

At 1:00pm on Thursday, December 31st a rally in support of peace and Israeli security will take place in south Israel. The event is coordinated by the Sderot Media Center and in coalition with the Sderot Municipality, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sapir College, IDC Herzlyia, WUJS, Eretz Nehederet, Bnei Akiva Olami, and Sderot Alon Madaim Elementary School. A march will convene at the Yad Mordechai Junction at 1:00pm. A Knesset Minister and Sderot municipality officials will be present, as well as area residents, international students, diplomatic officials, and Israeli youth as they all march to the Erez Crossing. An official a ceremony for civilian victims of terror around the world will be held at the Erez Crossing at 1:45pm.

Participation is very important as this march will counter the anti-Israel, anti-peace march into Gaza on the same day. It will show the world that Jews and non-Jews, Israelis and non-Israelis, desire a real peace and an end to vicious terror against Israel and world.

The people participating in the anti-Israel rally include far-left Europeans and Americans who financially support Hamas. One of the participating groups allegedly includes Viva Palestina, an organization that has provided financial support to Hamas. An Egyptian foreign minister said on Egyptian TV Channel 2 that the anti-Israel protesters and persons accompanying the Viva Palestina convoy would not be be allowed to enter Gaza. This is unconfirmed, but it will be interesting to find out how it plays out.

Here is an outline of planned events:

13:00: Marchers convene at Yad Mordechai Junction, depart by foot.
13:45: Reach Erez Crossing where Knesset Minister and Sderot municipality officials will address rally.
14:00: Candle Lighting Ceremony for victims of terror and civilian targets around the world.
14:30: Music Performance and Sderot girl reads letter to Gaza residents.
15:00: Release of white balloons with messages from Sderot children to Gaza.
