Palestine Solidarity Day today
The Palestine-Iraq Solidarity Council will observe 'Palestine Solidarity Day' today to protest the Israeli air strikes on innocent civilians in Gaza.
The day will be observed with a call to declare Israel a 'terrorist state' and Zionists 'war criminals', lift economic blockade of Gaza and create a sovereign Palestine state immediately.
As part of the countrywide protest programme, a rally will be held at Muktangan in Dhaka at 4:00pm, says a press release.
Convener of the Solidarity Council Prof KAM Saduddin will preside over the rally. National leaders, intellectuals and representatives of professional groups will take part in the rally to express solidarity with the Palestinians.
The Council also called on all organisations to stage protests, hold rallies and form human chains across the country at the same time today.
