TOMORROW - 16 August – National Day of Action in Support of Palestinian Freedom
Palestinian solidarity groups across New Zealand are organising a nationwide day of action in support of the Palestinian struggle on Saturday 16 August.
Events of the last month have brought unprecedented numbers of New Zealanders out to marches and rallies to protest Israel’s genocidal policies against the Palestinian people.
We will build on that momentum to strengthen the campaign to have the Israeli embassy closed and an end to all New Zealand links with apartheid Israel.
We will reach out to more New Zealanders to engage them in effective action to isolate Israel till it abides by UN resolutions and international law.
Already at least eight centres have indicated they will be joining the nationwide action. See details below.
Back in the 1980s the anti-apartheid movement successfully campaigned to cut links with apartheid South Africa. We will do the same with New Zealand links with Israeli apartheid.
