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.

Believe me, they won’t. Less excitable types will regard FPAs as heralding only a mild shift towards a more centralised form of bargaining over wages and conditions, much akin to what other successful economies (eg Germany) have recognised for decades...
