Protest Israel’s invasion of Gaza, Saturday
2pm, Saturday 17th November, Aotea Square
Global Peace & Justice Auckland is organising a march this Saturday to protest Israel’s assassination of a Palestinian leader in the Gaza Strip and the deadly rocket attacks in which many Palestinians have lost their lives.
The protest will gather at Aotea Square from 2pm and march to the US Consulate in Customs Street.
Here a protest rally, including the throwing of old shoes, will take place. (Throwing shoes is a traditional way of showing disgust at US/Israeli policies in the Middle East following the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at then US president George Bush in a 2008 media conference.)
