Vigil at noon Saturday to mourn victims of violence in Gaza

Omni members Bea Dewing and David Druding are organizing a vigil in honor of the dead and the suffering in the Gaza conflict. You're invited to join them on Saturday January 10, 12:00 noon, at the federal building at College and Mountain Streets.

Part of the vigil will be a Palestinian ceremony, called an "Azaa." That's the Arabic word for the mourning ceremony that occurs after the death of a loved one in the Islamic world. The ceremony usually occurs at a home with the women inside seated talking and sharing dark unsweetened coffee and prepared dates. The men congregate outside and share the same coffee and dates.

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of these ceremonies going on in Gaza and thruout the Occupied Territories at this very moment.

Hope you can help us spread the word about this demonstration/vigil that will occur at the federal bldg. this Sat., Jan. 10th, at noon.

For more information, you can call David at 479.521.5677, or Bea at 917-885-6090
