It has been more than a month and a half since Israel’s latest onslaught on Gaza started. 1 out of 200 Gazans have been killed so far, with countless others still under the rubble. In the meantime, Israeli settlers have increased their attacks on Palestinians in the West Bank, seizing more land and further driving Palestinians away from their homes. All of this is no less than the continuation of ethnic cleansing of Palestine, culminating in the current genocide being committed by Israel.
On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, join us in demanding an end to this genocide, an immediate ceasefire, and an end to the Lithuanian government’s and media’s support for Israel’s war crimes and crimes against humanity.
- Let’s show our solidarity with the people of Palestine
- Let’s comdemn Israel’s crimes against humanity
- Let’s not allow genocide to be committed in front of our eyes

- Signs or symbols of organisations such as the IDF or Hamas are not allowed at the event.
- Event organisers dissociate themselves from persons who are somehow incapable of understanding that to condemn the slaughter of innocent civilians does not mean supporting terrorism.
