Oregon State University student Jessica Campbell will join 100 marchers who will cross into Gaza as part of the Gaza Freedom March on Wednesday. Portland State student Sarah Hassouneh also will participate. Campbell plans to bring school supplies. She raised more than $1,000 and hopes to distribute the supplies purchased in Cairo, Egypt, in the Salah Din refugee camp in Gaza.
An Evening of Solidarity with Gaza Freedom Marchers is scheduled on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Multi-Cultural Literacy Center, 128 S.W. Ninth St., Corvallis. There will be a potluck dinner and a Skype connection with Campbell and other marchers. Admission is free; any donations will be used for school supplies for the children in refugee camps in Gaza.
