8:49 a.m., Aug. 8, 2014--Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Delaware, in conjunction with Delaware Neighbors Against the Occupation, will sponsor a rally at the Wilmington office of U.S. Sen. Chris Coons at 3:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 8, to call for freedom and justice for the Palestinians and to stand up for their human rights.

“The most recent escalation in Gaza has resulted in over 1,800 Palestinian deaths, nearly a quarter of which are children and roughly 85 percent of which are civilians,” a representative of the campus organization said. “This crisis, while terrible, is only the most recent in a long history of occupation and injustice.”
