VIGIL FOR MUSTAFA TAMIMI

Friday, 16 December, 2011, 6:00 p.m., small square outside Harvard Station T stop. Candles will be provided. Please forward widely.

Please join us for a vigil for Mustafa Tamimi on the seventh day of his killing. Mustafa was a 28-year old Palestinian from the village of Nabi Saleh, and part of a popular resistance committee that protested weekly against the Israeli occupation. He was shot in the face with a tear gas canister by an Israeli soldier. He died of his injuries. He is the first resister from Nabi Saleh to be killed during the protests. Other popular resistance committees where protesters have been killed include Nilin, Bilin, Biddu, and Budrus.
