Vigil for Gaza

Duke Against War attended and sponsored the recent vigil for Gaza organized by Duke's Arab Students Organization (ASO) and Muslim Students Association (MSA). It was very well attended, and the audience enjoyed a nicely orchestrated slideshow presentation accompanied by a powerful song by the Black Eyed Peas.

The event also featured a number of powerful speeches by sisters from both the ASO and MSA, a talk by Laila El-Haddad, a local Palestinian journalist, a member of Duke Against War, and comments from people in attendance.

Coverage of the event appeared in the Duke Chronicle here early Friday.
