A demonstration for Palestine

Salam,
I know many of us are furious about the recent actions of Israel, so here is our chance to be heard. This is going to be a peaceful demonstration. With that in mind, please be aware that you represent the community, so please no fighting, always be respectful to others, and leave the location in a condition better than in which you found it. Anyone and everyone willing to support the cause is welcome. Make your own fliers and dress appropriately. Event will start at 2 sharp (be sure to leave time for parking) and end at 4. This will be held at the Seattle Center, more specifically on the corner of 5th ave and Broad street. see you out there!

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every day until Aug 2, 2014
ACT – A Contemporary Theatre,
700 Union St, Seattle, WA 98101 United States

Inspired by the true story of University of Washington student Gordon Hirabayashi, Hold These Truths follows Gordon during the U.S. Government’s decision to forcibly remove and incarcerate people of Japanese ancestry during World War II.

Joel de la Fuente stars in Jeanne Sakata‘s solo show about Gordon Hirabayshi as he fights to reconcile his country’s betrayal and to maintain his passionate belief in the U.S. Constitution. In Hold These Truths we witness Hirabayashi as he journeys toward a greater understanding of America’s triumphs – and a confrontation with its failures. Joel de la Fuente can be seen on Netflix’s original series Hemlock Grove as Dr. Johann Pryce and as TARU Tech Ruben Morales on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
