Gaza Rally This Saturday

A reminder that there is a solidarity rally for Gaza THIS SATURDAY THE 24TH OF NOVEMBER. MEETING AT THE CUBA BUCKET FOUNTAIN AT 12 MIDDAY.

Despite the ceasefire announcement today (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/read-the-text-of-the-israel-hamas-ceasefire-agreement/article5526174/) Hopefully it holds!! IT IS still SO important we are out on the streets, yet again, to call for an end to Israeli impunity and to show our solidarity with the 162 Gazaans killed by the IDF since the incursion began, many of whom were women, children and elderly.
We plan on chalking the names of all the dead, and their ages. It's important for us to remind others, and ourselves, the dead are not just statistics, but peoples brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners and children. SO BRING CHALK IF YOU HAVE ANY.

We are low on banners/ placards so please do bring and make some if you have the time.

POSTER FOR EVENT IS ATTACHED. Please feel free to print and share.

SEE YOU THERE,

Nadia
Students For Justice in Palestine

Original event description
" As Israel’s bombardment of the small coastal strip of Gaza continues and the death toll rises by the hour, we continue to be told that this is defence on the part of the Israeli state.

Israel breaks ceasefire. Israel massacres Palestinians. The world blames Palestinians.

But we say, we’re not idiots, we know better.
We say that bombarding a largely defenceless civilian population with sophisticated weaponry is not war, it is murder.
We say ENOUGH!

Around the world, people are taking to the streets to show their outrage at the brutal Israeli regime and the silence and complicity of their own governments. Come together with us this Saturday to do the same here in Aotearoa and stand in solidarity with those ethnically cleansed, imprisoned and murdered, yet still staunch in the face of a massacre, in Gaza.

Meet at the Bucket Fountain, Cuba Mall, at midday. Bring along signs, banners and flags, your friends, your voice and your raised fist.

Please share widely."

Gordon Campbell: On The Ch-Ch-Changes At IRD

job cuts aren’t happening at the IRD, exactly. Instead, there’s apparently a ‘transformation’ in store, and jobs won’t be axed ; no, they will be ‘transformed’ before our eyes into… non-jobs, if you happen to be among the unlucky legion of 1,900 who are being lined up for transformation, which seems to work rather like a secular version of the Rapture.

Except that at IRD, not even your shoes will be left behind. More>>
