Gaza Freedom March is compiling a list of emergency protests planned for the next few days all over the US and the rest of the world.  Take a look and see if there's one near you (and if there's not, maybe you can organize one).

NO protests in front of any US Federal Agencies I see. ANOTHER case of addressing the symptom instead of the problem.

Women in Black are protesting as usual today and will have Gaza signs.

On Monday, SDS is protesting in front of the US federal building in my town.

There was a small -- tiny, really, about 30 people -- protest in Seoul today outside the Israeli Embassy. I found it thanks to the list John linked to in his post. The Embassy is on the sixteen floor of a building near City Hall, so we couldn't actually see the Embassy. No media were present except a Reuters photographer, and though there were four police buses parked along the sidewalk, the police didn't have their riot gear so everything was peaceful. The protesters were mostly young and mostly Korean (except for two young American English teachers and old American me).

It was small, but it happened, and it's important to know that these things were happening all over the world.

The pictures I took should be visible if you click on my name.
