JVP Stages Die-In at Pike Place Market

For Real Peace, Take the Profit out of Palestinian Suffering

Deeply concerned Jews in Seattle, in concert with other local activists and Jews across the country, are engaging in a demonstration in Pike’s Place Market to demand that the truth be told about the violence being perpetrated by the Israeli government against the Palestinian people. Since the beginning of Israel’s assault on Gaza, upwards of 190 Palestinians have been killed, many of them children. Using street theater to illuminate the brutality of Israel’s war on the civilians of Gaza, Jewish Voice for Peace demonstrators call out not only Israel’s one-sided assault, but also the corporations profiting from Israel’s wars and decades-long Occupation.
