Purpose

Rise up and march in solidarity with Egypt!

AGENDA

We will gather at the Waterfront on SW Salmon and Naito Parkway at 2:00pm. There may be another march concurrently happening.

There will be an open forum and announcements.

Please prepare signs.

Please bring a candle and a container to hold the wax (such as a dixie cup) which can also help as a wind blocker. There will be a candlelight vigil for those who have been affected by the violent attacks, directly and indirectly, but most importantly, to pay respect and tribute to the renegade fighters passed who were murdered by the junta military force.

The candlelight vigil will begin at 7pm at Pioneer Square. Please bring extras to share, if possible.
