Concept of commemorating this day: a candle vigil
Theme: Light a candle for Palestine: Peace with justice in the Middle East
Date and time: 29.11.2011 at 20:00
Location: worldwide, in front of either the Palestinian Representative or the Israeli embassy in your country
The idea is to have a gathering with as much supporters and friends from our networks and partners' circles worldwide. The gathering can be held in front of either the Palestinian representative offices or the Israeli embassy or the UN Offices in different countries. The aim is to mark the importance of this international day by lighting candles for Palestine and the Palestinians. The vigil can involve holding banners and boards calling on Israel to abide by International law, and expressing solidarity with the Palestinians. We will circulate an invitation letter to all our partners and friends, which you are welcome to copy and spread: the higher the number, the bigger the impact.
There is also a possibility to coordinate these gatherings with different circles that we are involved in. In many countries there are more campaigns, groups and network concerned . You can work together to facilitate the event and guarantee its success. This important day should remain highlighted and it is our chance to help in doing so.
Please do report to us (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) about these activities, with some pictures, if you feel this is fine. This will definitely help us to learn and share the experiences with others.
