Victorian Socialists will be participating in this rally in solidarity with the Palestinians on Saturday May 19. We urge all our supporters to join us.
Over 100 Palestinians has been killed by Israeli snipers on the Gaza border, including paramedics, journalists, children and double amputees over the past six weeks.
Thousands have been injured, many shot in the legs, while they tried to walk to the Gaza border to demand their right of return to villages their families were forcibly displaced from during the Nakba in 1948 or in 1967. Israel is creating a new generation of disabled in Gaza.
The South African ambassador has been withdrawn from Israel in protest. The response of the Turnbull government? To blame the Palestinians for this horrific massacre. This adds extra responsibility on us to join the rally to protest Australia's complicity and to show our solidarity with the Palestinians.
This rally has been organised by Solidarity for Palestine - Narrm Melb.
