Stop Israeli State Terror – Rally on 26th July, Aotea Square

22 July 2014

Stop Israeli State Terror – Rally and March this Saturday 26th July, Aotea Square, 2pm

The humanitarian crisis in Gaza is getting much worse and the world is marching in unprecedented numbers.

New Zealanders spoke out strongly last Saturday with a march of 5,000 people in Auckland (see picture below) – the biggest march ever in New Zealand in support of Palestinians – and in other centres as well.

New Zealanders will rally and march again this Saturday from 2pm in Aotea Square.

With over 500 Palestinians killed in Gaza – most of them civilians – we are disgusted at the feeble comments from Foreign Minister Murray McCully and meaningless words of Prime Minister John Key. Key is happy to condemn those responsible for the airline tragedy in Ukraine but refuses to condemn Israeli state terror which has murdered hundreds more civilians in Gaza.

The New Zealand government must stop its one-sided pro-Israel stance, close the Israeli Embassy in Wellington, stop the special visa-free arrangement for young Israelis coming to New Zealand and boycott Israel.

This rally and march is being organised by:

Palestine Solidarity Network
Kia ora Gaza
Palestine Human Rights Campaign
Students for Justice in Palestine
Global Peace and Justice Auckland
