Gaza Is Under Attack: Protest This Saturday Aotea Square

GAZA IS UNDER ATTACK: PROTEST THIS SATURDAY AOTEA SQUARE at 2pm.

Press release:

Auckland University Students for Justice in Palestine (AUSJP) are calling for a protest this Saturday 24th of November at 2pm in Aotea Square to protest the ongoing Israeli aggression and air strikes on the Gaza Strip that have left 92 dead so far and over 750 people injured. One of the deadliest attacks over the last 6 days has killed 12 members from one single family.

Israeli forces continue to pound the Gaza Strip for the sixth consecutive day, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised to expand and escalate the attacks. The Israeli army has deployed 75,000 troops on Gaza's border ready for a ground invasion.

The 1.5 million people of Gaza are defensless against the brute force of the Israeli government, and the international community cannot stand by and let the massacre of 2008 happen again while we remain silent. The New Zealand government should be at the forefront of an international call for an end to the violent and illegal attacks from the Israeli state.

We urge all New Zealanders to join us. Our very own Roger Fowler of Kia Ora Gaza has only just managed to escape the onslaught and exited through the Rafah crossing last Thursday.

This protest is supported by the Unite Union, Socialist Aotearoa, Global Peace and Justice Auckland, Kia Ora Gaza, the Mana Movement and Palestine Human Rights Campaign.

The protest will gather at Aotea Square from 2 pm and march to the US Consulate in Customs Street, possibly making a few stops along the way. Bring along your Palestinian flags, t-shirts, banners and signs of solidarity as well as your friends and family.

Kia Kaha,
Auckland University Students for Justice in Palestine
