#PeaceLikeMine – international union campaign for peace in Gaza
Workers in New Zealand are today the first to participate in an international day of action being undertaken by unions across the globe calling for the United Nations to do more to deliver peace between Israel and Palestine.
“The only solution is a permanent cease-fire with the intervention of the international community to force the parties to the table to conclude a negotiated settlement that ends the blockade of Gaza and the occupation of Palestine. The people of Israel and the people of Palestine will only be assured of a peaceful and secure future with a two-state solution, where all people can live in peace and security and build a future for themselves and their children.” CTU President Helen Kelly said.
“Today people from all around the world will take a photo of something which represents what peace means to them – perhaps it’s breakfast with the family, a sleeping child, coffee and a newspaper, a walk along the beach, whatever peace means to them – then thanks to technology – these images can be uploaded to the website www.bypost.com/peacelikemine which will then generate a personalised postcard to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon.” Kelly said.
“Lots of people are asking what they can do about the terrible situation in Gaza – here is something people can do.” Kelly said.
