February 29 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

Join us to learn and discuss:

  • What was the state of health care in Gaza before the October assault?
  • What is the impact on civilians of the massive bombing and dislocation of Gaza?
  • What is International Human Rights law, and has it been violated?
  • Have war crimes been committed?
  • Has the war reached the level of genocide?
  • What can we do?
