Simultaneous vigil for the Gaza victims

Plans are beginning to take shape for the vigil for the victims of Gaza on Sunday the 8th of February. So far, several groups have come forward and are organizing simultaneous events across the Middle East, Europe and the US. The date was chosen because it approximately coincides with the 40th day commemoration of the first child killed. (The 40th day marks an important day of mourning in the Arab world.)

There will be simultaneous vigils in Beirut, Amman, Nablus, Helsinki, Tokyo, Dubai, Dublin and San Jose (Ca). There me be more locations, but I don't have the full list. For more details on who and how, check this post on Marcy's blog
