Solidarity with Gaza—picket

An emergency picket in response to Israel's latest air assault on Gaza, which killed at least 10 people and wounded 90. 12 noon in Cuba Mall.

On November 14, two days after Palestinian factions in Gaza agree to a truce following several days of violence, Israel assassinates the leader of Hamas' military wing, Ahmed Jabari, threatening to escalate the violence once again after a week in which at least six Palestinian civilians are killed and dozens more wounded in Israeli attacks.

Once again, Israel has broken ceasefire and taken lives of Palestinians in its pursuit to have a Zionist-Jew only state. This is a continuation of Israel's systematic ethnic cleansing which targets Palestinians. In the face of this atrocity, we must stand by the Palestinians and their families to show solidarity in their struggle against the forces maintaining the occupation, and show that they are not alone in their resistance against the terrorism that Israel has inflicted upon them.

Students for Justice in Palestine (Wellington) are organising an emergency picket, Friday 16th November (at the Bucket Fountain Cuba Mall) , to voice solidarity with Palestinians, and hold the Israel Government and Military to account for these attacks.

When: Midday Friday 16th November
Where: Bucket Fountain, Cuba Mall, Wellington

Please BYO banners, placards, and voices. Please pass on this invitation!
