Local Protests Scheduled for Dec 30th National Day of Action

Well if Hamas started it, innocent civilians are getting their butts kicked - and worse! There's already the ongoing humanitarian crisis that still hasn't been resolved. Suffering makes you a little less likely to want to sit at the negotiation table.

There have been quite a few protests in San Francisco already, at the Israeli embassy and Senator Dianne Feinstein's office.

Tuesday will mark a day of demonstrations calling for an immediate end to the attacks on the citizens of the Gaza strip by the Israeli government. Let's hope calmer heads will prevail and trigger happy people move away from the weapons and use some diplomacy.
