Protest against slaughter in Gaza

Protest against slaughter in Gaza

Global Peace and Justice Auckland is organising a protest against Israeli's latest attacks on the people of Gaza.

The protest will be outside the US Consulate in Quay Street Auckland from 4pm this Tuesday 30th December. The consulate is being targeted because the US has given unconditional backing to the Israeli government in these attacks.

Initial reports indicate at least 200 Palestinians have been killed and close to 800 injured in what has been described as one of the worst indiscriminate killings of Palestinians in the 60 years since they were driven from their homes and their land by Jewish terror squads at the founding of Israel.

Israel says the attacks are in retaliation for rocket attacks against Israel from inside Gaza. However having besieged one and half millions Palestinians in Gaza and refused to allow land, sea or air access Israel is keeping these people in a massive open-air prison.

It is to be expected that Palestinians will fight back with whatever means they have at hand.

We are calling on the New Zealand government to condemn these cowardly Israeli attacks.
