The Washington Times – The D.C. Dyke March, billed as an all-inclusive celebration of underrepresented people, is banning Israeli and Jewish Pride flags but allowing Palestinian flags during Friday’s event.
The march, returning to Washington after a 12-year hiatus, is seeking to be more radical than its previous version, including LGBTQ people of various races, religions, socioeconomic classes and gender identities, organizers said.
However, pro-Zionist and “nationalist symbols,” including Israeli and Jewish Pride flags, will not be welcomed at the event, they added. Yael Horowitz, a Jewish march organizer, said the ban is a protest against “nations that have specific oppressive tendencies.” . . . The Palestinian flag, however, will be permitted, she added.
