The Genocide Continues and Guess Who's Coming?


As children, caregivers, and families, we are called to do everything we can to stop the genocide in Gaza that is being enabled by our federal officials. On Sunday, November 12, children and families across the country will stand up to stop this violence and defend Palestinian kids’ future. We invite you to join us. Here in the Bay Area, we will gather at 9:30 am at the Oakland Federal Building, 1301 Clay Street. 

We will have activities for families and kids of all ages to learn more in an age appropriate way about what is happening and to take meaningful action. There will be art, drumming, interactive activities, and more. All are welcome! 

The 35ish year old woman was speaking to an audience of children from perhaps 18 months old  to possibly 4 or 5 years old.   She spoke of how the children of Gaza were being "hurt badly" and how wrong this was.   The children used magic markers to color in 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheets - for the Gazan People - the outlines were on the sheets.

Date: Sunday, 12 November 2023
Time: 11:00 AM
Location: Ferry Building, San Francisco CA 94114
Description: Bring your Palestinian flags and keffiyehs

San Francisco is honored to be the Host City for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders’ Week 2023 with the theme of “Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Future for All.”

Well thousands of us disagree just a bit! Some from Boston, some from Seattle, some from Portland, many from different parts of California and far, far more places!


GABRIELA is a grassroots-based alliance of more than 200 organizations, institutions, desks and programs based in communities, workplaces and schools throughout all regions and major provinces and cities in the Philippines. It also has chapters in eight countries outside of the Philippines.

Founded in 1984, GABRIELA organizes Filipino women, primarily from marginalized sectors of society, and helps educate and empower them to fight for their rights and interests through collective action.
GABRIELA provides direct services to marginalized women including counseling services to women survivors of VAW, medical missions, free clinics, relief and rehabilitation in times of disaster and capability building trainings on women’s health and women’s rights.

GABRIELA builds networks and links with other local and international women’s organizations and institutions for cooperation and mutual support as well as with other people’s organizations in the Philippines and in other countries.

GABRIELA aspire for a sovereign society free from foreign domination and intervention with a self-reliant economy geared towards the people’s needs and gives equal value to the role of women in production; where land belongs to the tillers and recognizes women’s equal right to own land; a democratic government where the people’s rights — including women’s rights — are upheld, respected and guaranteed and women’s political participation is ensured and; a socio-cultural system that is devoid of patriarchal values, gender oppression, discrimination, and violence.

They sang, they spoke and were most inspiring!

We marched after the Inspiring Rally

The speakers were in both Spanish and English. They were alliances of Feminist Women, Socialists, Palestinian Women and Men. We were in this Together!

I spent the whole rally holding up the banner.   Then the picture above with me holding my banner was taken.

It was relaxing sitting behind the banner holding it up with four and then five other people. It was a meaningful rally and I was a part of the first part of the March.
