Our prayers are for a free Palestine.

Palestinians take to the streets to protest the Israeli occupation

This week, we are praying for Palestinians who have been shot and injured by Israeli soldiers and shout out in pain from live ammunition, teargas, and rubber bullets. We pray for the people of Gaza who were injured by Israeli bombs but are unable to get proper healthcare as a result of the ongoing Israeli blockade. We pray for those who are arbitrarily detained, beaten, and arrested by Israeli forces for speaking out against apartheid and ethnic cleansing. We pray for the Palestinians in ‘48 [within the 1948 borders of so-called Israel] who are treated as second-class citizens by the Israeli government.

Our prayers are for a free Palestine.
