Gaza is under Attack!
Protest This Saturday
AOTEA SQUARE - 2pm.

Students for Justice in Palestine are calling for a protest this Saturday 24th of November at 2pm in Aotea Square to express our outrage at the Israeli aggression and air strikes on the Gaza strip that have left over 100 dead and more than 850 people injured. One of the deadliest attacks last week killed 12 members from one single family.

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.

Despite the temporary ceasefire which began on Thursday, we call for an end, once and for all, to the violent attacks from the Israeli state and urge all New Zealanders to join us. Our very own Roger Fowler of Kia Ora Gaza only just managed to escape the onslaught and exited through the Rafah crossing on Thursday.

The protest will gather at Aotea Square from 2pm and march to the US Consulate on Customs Street, possibly making a few stops along the way.

Bring along your Palestinian flags, t-shirts, banners and signs of solidarity. Please invite all your friends and family, and share this event far and wide.
