All Welcome!

There are going to be several speakers, most of whom have first hand experience of living and working in Palestine including:

Ali Nissenbaum, a Jewish anti-Zionist who was recently in Israel and the West Bank during the recent war in Gaza. She will be speaking about Israeli and joint Israeli-Palestinian
resistance to the occupation.

Omar El-Hadad who is one of the Imams at the Christchurch Mosque. Omar has been involved in political activities in Egypt against the American air bombing of Iraq in 1998, which resulted in him getting fired from the university. He will speak about the older history of the area, in particular it's 14 centuries of peace, except for the crusades and now the Arab-Israeli wars. The talk will focus on the Israeli claims that this piece of land was empty and the continuous denial of any non-Jewish history in that part of the world.

The Justice For Palestine group formed in response to the recent bombings and massacre of hundreds of Palestinian people living in Gaza by the Israeli Military. We stand in solidarity with Arabic and Palestinian peoples who have been living within a state of apartheid within their own country for the last 60 years. We support an end to State violence and war and the cycles of endless violence against the people living in Palestine including Gaza and we support the resistance spirit of all the Palestinians who stand for justice.

Why? I've seen what you lot do. You tend to ignore the fact that Palastine has this whole 'Kill the Jews' mindset. Either that, or you all condone it and support it with your protests and raising of monies.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTIN

If you'd come along you would have met the Palestinian community and realised the error of your ignorance. But then again that would involve thinking...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALE

The Palastine communtiy.. Where? In New Zealand? Because they're the ones shooting at the Jews. Yeah, right.

Maybe you should realize that because a community of people is against it in a different country doesn't mean the people in the country where the shit's going down aren't supporting it, chief.

Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTINA!

nah, it just means we'd prefer them to be fed, looked after and happy than bombed, hungry and traumatised.

Indymedia: Hypocritically anti-democratic

"Once again, you delete comments. Clearly this board is against free speech!"

so you obviously don't mind telling others about your rights to free speech but faiul to apply those standards to others. why am i not surprised? your causes are lost and your means are contradictory.

Re: Indymedia: Hypocritically anti-democratic

If you lot think you can get away with burning a New Zealand flag on Anzac day, then I can say whatever the hell I want to what ever the hell I want. Your own causes are contradictory.

Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTINA!

It's completely obvious what the Palestinians are going through! Only people without moral concience and governments with something to gain would stand by Isreal well done viva palestinia well done

Re: Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTINA!

Because Palestine's never attacked Israel at all, have they?

Re: Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTINA!

Re: Re: Justice for Palestine presents VIVA PALESTINA!

Because Palestine's never Occupied Israel at all, have they?

As in " To seize possession of and maintain control over by or as if by conquest."
