Israel continues its deadly assault on Palestinians in Gaza

The military assault by Israel against Palestinians in Gaza is in its fourth week. The numbers of Palestinians killed in this war is fast approaching 2,000 while there are almost 10,000 Palestinians who have been injured. Most of these have been civilians. The Israeli army has created a military buffer zone around Gaza which has produced an even greater humanitarian disaster. While many Western governments back Israel’s war, the reality is that the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves. Protests against the war continue all around the world - see here for next Melbourne rally. Many trade unions, like South Africa’s COSATU, have come out strongly against Israeli aggression.

Stop the war - Lift the siege on Gaza - Free all Palestinian prisoners
