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.
