Embassy of Israel to participate in Auckland Gay Parade

Embassy of Israel to participate in Auckland Gay Parade

Whilst BDS Campaigners have fled in their minivan to Wellington to protest against the performance of the world renowned Dance Company Batsheva at the New Zealand Festival, the Embassy of Israel will be participating in Auckland’s annual Gay Parade this Saturday the 22nd of February.

This event, which celebrates people of all genders and ethnicities underpins Israel’s stance on democracy, tolerance and freedom of speech and proves to differ the argument of those who claim that Israel is an Apartheid State!

The Parade starts at 19.00 and departs from Ponsonby Road. Anyone who stands with Israel and embraces Israel's democracy and wants to join the Israeli representation can contact the Embassy by email on: publicaffaris@wellington.mfa.gov.il.
