National Rallies And Marches Demanding Stop Bombing Gaza! End The Genocide! Ceasefire NOW!
The shocking scenes at Gaza’s Al Shifa hospital are an affront to every human sensibility as Israel continues its wholesale slaughter of Palestinian civilians in Gaza.
Israeli bombs and bullets have killed over 15,000 people including 6,403 children in the last six weeks– the equivalent of all the children in 23 average-sized New Zealand primary schools.
Almost as shocking is the complete silence of our politicians – refusing to condemn the genocide of Palestinians taking place before our eyes.
This weekend thousands of people from centres across the country are holding vigils, rallying and marching again to demand our government:
- Condemn Israel’s genocidal attacks on Gaza
- Call for an immediate comprehensive ceasefire
- Call for the Palestinian people in Gaza to be placed under immediate United Nations protection
- Demand a swift investigation by the International Criminal Court into war crimes committed in Israel/Gaza since October 7th – including the crimes of genocide and apartheid
- Send the Israeli ambassador home
It is the failure of western governments, New Zealand included, to hold Israel to account for its crimes against the Palestinian people that is behind Israel’s genocidal rampage in Gaza today.
