END THE WAR ON GAZA - FREE PALESTINE!
Last week Brisbane and Perth had their largest ever Palestine solidarity protests. Estimated crowds of 4,500 and 6,000 rallied to demand an end to Israel’s criminal siege and bombing of Gaza. Nearly 1,000 people came out in Canberra, and more then 15,000 marched in Sydney and Melbourne.
Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip for more than two weeks. More than 4,600 Palestinians, including nearly 2,000 children, have been killed in the territory.
All this is a continuation, in horribly escalated form, of the 75 years of war that Israel has waged on the Palestinian people, including 16 years of brutal siege on Gaza.
Now more than ever we need to continue standing in solidarity with Palestine and demand an end to Israel's criminal siege on Gaza.
Join us to protest these atrocities, and to demand:
Stop the war on Gaza!
End the blockade of food, water, fuel and medical supplies!
End the Israeli occupation!
Australia to cut ties with Apartheid Israel!
We remind everyone that the struggle for a free Palestine is an anti-racist struggle. We condemn and oppose all forms of racism, including anti-semitism and Islamophobia. Ours is a struggle against the state of Israel, not against Jewish people, many of whom oppose Zionism, and who have a long history of being part of our movement for a free Palestine. Anyone wishing to express anti-semitic views is not welcome at our protests.
