OKLAHOMA FOR RAFAH

This past Friday, May 31st, hundreds of Oklahomans gathered at the corner of Scissortail Park in downtown Oklahoma City to protest the recent barbarity in Rafah, Gaza, by the zionist entity “Israel”.

No Safe Zone

Nearly 1.5 million people have been sheltering in make-shift tents in addition to the remains of houses and other buildings destroyed in Rafah. The city was designated a “safe zone” by the “israeli” occupation forces but ultimately, there is no “safe zone” left in Gaza. 

This Tent Massacre left dozens of men, women, and children brutally murdered, with documentation revealing people trapped and burned alive, children decapitated, and others with limbs blown off from the bombings. 

Since the onslaught of the zionist entity’s genocide in Gaza last October, some people in the heart of Oklahoma have chosen to stand on the side of humanity. Activists, artists, teachers, parents, and more have regularly gathered to protest and demand action for the war crimes and horrific violence being carried out against Palestine.

This recent action, “All Out for Rafah,” following the abominable Tent Massacre, garnered media attention from AlJazeera Arabic and news stations around the world.

The People United

Scenes from the day included people from all backgrounds and all faiths speaking as one. Families joined with children, signs, and shirts showing solidarity from Jews against Zionism, Indigenous partners, and our local Muslim community. 

Chants led by Palestinian voices called for an immediate ceasefire, an end to the siege on Gaza, an end to the occupation, and the total liberation of Palestine from the River to the Sea. 

IT IS TIME TO SPEAK UP!

It’s imperative that people continue to speak up, speak out, and uplift Palestinian voices. Especially in the settler-colonialist nation of the “United States” that continues to fund this genocide and countless others around the globe. Until Palestine is free, OAO is committed to educating, advocating, and supporting the safety and freedom of the Palestinian people.

"Israel" has continued to escalate its attacks in Gaza, bombing refugee camps and carrying out a ground invasion as part of its genocidal onslaught. We must demand our city of Oklahoma City to stand with humanity and call for a ceasefire resolution.
