Wall of Noise protest to shut down Israeli propaganda event

Wall of Noise protest to shut down Israeli propaganda event

From: Auckland Peace Action

Date: 12 May 2018

Auckland Peace Action is holding a public "Wall of Noise" protest at the 70th Israeli Independence Day on Sunday, 13 May from 1:30pm (meeting at ANZ Viaduct Events Centre).

"70 years of the Israeli state is not a milestone to celebrate, and we will be shutting it down accordingly," said APA member Valerie Morse

This day is not a celebration for the Palestinian people. Instead this day is called the "Nakba" - the catastrophe. The foundation of Israel is built on the ethnic cleansing of 750,000 to 100,000,000 indigenous Palestinians 70 years ago and turning them into refugees to establish a Jewish-majority state in Palestine. The Nakba is not a crime of the past, it is ongoing.
Last month over 30 Palestinian civilians were murdered by Israeli snipers.

"Israel is a terrorist state, and people supporting it could be considered terrorist sympathisers under the anti-terrorism laws" said Ms Morse.

Our plan is to make so much noise that they will be unable to continue with the proceedings.
