93-yr-old Holocaust survivor speaks on Freedom for Palestine

18 August 2014

93-year-old Holocaust survivor speaks to Freedom for Palestine rally in Auckland

We were very pleased with the great turnout around New Zealand for the Freedom for Palestine rallies held in eight centres around the country on the weekend.

Perhaps the highlight which was not reported by the media was when 93-year-old Holocaust survivor Gunter Warner addressed the Auckland rally.

Gunter’s comments deserve wide reporting and we’d invite the media to use his comments and interview him in future reporting. It’s the strong and growing voice of Jewish opposition to the racist policies of the Israeli government.

Here it is on Youtube – he is introduced by Green Party MP Catherine Delahunty.
