Rally at Senator Fetterman's office

8 Dec 2023

The first regularly-scheduled, weekly rally in front of Senator Fetterman's office (12:15 to 1:15 Fridays) opposing his view that Israel is completely blameless and Hamas is completely and utterly guilty (Well, okay. We agree about Hamas). The rally was to encourage Fetterman to view the Palestinian people of Gaza with some mercy and to try, as much as possible, to preserve Palestinian lives.
