Rally at Pingree’s Portland Office Friday, November 17 to Urge Her Support for Ceasefire


A Rally was announced today for tomorrow, Friday November 17 at 1:00 pm at Congresswoman Chellie Pingree’s (D-Maine) Portland waterfront office to urge her supportt for a cease fire and humanitarian pause  in the Israel-Hamas war.

On November 7, 2023 Congresswoman Pingree issued a statement that she and almost 60 other members of Congress had written Secretary of State Blinken urging US support for a humanitarian pause and for Israel to conduct military operatios within international law.  The letter to Secretary Blinken was dated November 3, 2023.

However, apparently for this group hosting tomorrow’s outside Rally, this November 7th announement does not go far enough in the conflict between Israel and Hamas.
