1000+ Protest Against Gaza Assault In Wellington


The Scoop Team

A protest organized by the Wellington Palestine Group against the Israeli assault on Gaza drew a crowd of more than 1000 people on an otherwise very quiet day in the capital.

The group started its protest outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Panama Street, where an open letter was delivered to Murray McCully. The group then moved down to the Yitzhak Rabin peace memorial adjacent to the Library in Civic Square.

At the Rabin memorial, Catholic priest Fr Gerard Burns mixed some of his blood with red paint and smeared it on the memorial plaque to mourn the killing and oppression of thousands of Palestinians and the seizure of their land.

The memorial celebrates the life of former Israeli Prime Minister Rabin who was assassinated as he worked to bring about a lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinian people.
