I wonder in Australia when we became a nation that endorsed the jailer going into a jail to shoot the inmates, targeted and indiscriminately? Remember, it is Occupied Palestine and it has closed borders. Who is the occupier? Additionally, we are talking about a vast majority of civilians, more than fifty percent children. Civilian inmates.
In addition: UN halts Gaza aid operations . The international community is going to be wearing the fallout from this one for a long time to come. 770 dead.
For those in Western Australia:
From Students Without a Border, if you are from Western Australia and want to attend a rally:
January 2009 Newsletter
Gaza Rally – Saturday 10 January. Friends of Palestine WA is holding a rally in Fremantle and is calling for everyone who wants to express their anger and sorrow over Israel's continuing assault on the citizens of Gaza to join them. Friends of Palestine WA is calling for an immediate end to the Israeli military assault, the lifting of the siege of Gaza, and an end to the occupation of Palestine.
Each and every person, each and every State, should have the right to natural justice, the right to liberty, peace and security. For sixty years the Palestinian people have had their rights denied while the mainstream international media has distorted their rights and arguments with an almost fanatical prejudice. Fair and equitable mutually agreed territories with agreed international borders seem the only path to any real solution.
RALLY & MARCH FOR THE PEOPLE OF GAZA - LIFT THE SIEGE, STOP THE MASSACRE, HUMANITARIAN AID NOW
THE ESPLANADE PARK, FREMANTLE
There is further information about the current conflict in Gaza, provided by the FOPWA, on the SWB website news page. Read it here.
