Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

in

4pm Tomorrow Tuesday 30th December.
Outside US Consulate on Customs Street, Downtown Auckland. Just by bottom of Queen Street
Protest organised by Global Peace and Justice Auckland (GPJA).

Over the past two days Israeli airstrikes have killed nearly 300 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli Government has said that a massive ground invasion by Israeli troops, may follow. This will result in even more terrible suffering and death.

Demonstrations calling for an end to Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine are happening all over the World this week. The protest action in Auckland will target the US Consulate, as the US government continously beefs up Israel's occupation of Palestine with both massive amounts of military aid and diplomatic support. President Elect Barack Obama has indicated that his administration will continue to strongly support Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine.

Gaza massacres must spur us to action

"President Elect Barack Obama has indicated that his administration will continue to strongly support Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine."

Just goes to show that it really doesn't matter if there is a man, woman, black, white or alien sitting in the Oval Office, it is still business as usual.

Time to pull the sign down and close up the shop. This is an offense against democracy, a farce, a sad sick premonition of civil war in the global village.

I ride with the King!

And the King will give His own Jewish people a brutal awakening, don't you worry about that.

Let's not forget that Hamas kept bombing Israel for a year, firing at civilians. They got what they deserved, let's be fair.

Re: Re: Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tue

You fail at fairness.
Over the past 7 years, Hamas rockets have killed 16 Israelis. In two days Israeli's killed 300 Palestinians. Thats not fair.
On top of that, Israel has occupied the surrounding region, preventing food and essential medicine reaching Palestinians. I think it is fair that Hamas should retaliate, as Israel will not stop the blockade in the face of international condemnation.

Get what they Deserved!!!!!?????

are you an israeli or something?? do you think its ok for 100 children to be killed not to mention how many women and innocent victims??

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

You guys are the voice of justice and compassion, hope there are many of you in this world. I definitely will turn up to support.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Its not about how many rockets and bombs are being lobbed, that is a diversion away from the real issue. It is a matter of the value of a life. Throwing rocks at tanks shows on one side just how much the human soul has been reduced to desparation.

The Israeli Govt know full well that they will not achieve a win with their bombing of Gaza infrastructure, but what I think they are wanting to achieve is a 6 month ceasefire. So in bombing the living crap out of Gaza they believe this will bring Hamas to the table for real talks about a ceasing of rocketing into Israel.

Lets not forget, to the Israelis living in the rocket range region, it is terrifying to them.

The Israeli military do not value the lives of the Palestinians, they will bomb and kill 5000 Palestinian civilians if that is what it takes to achieve their goals and therein lays the real issue.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Plenty more non-Jewish leaders are worse than those list of arseholes you posted. Conspiracy theories aside, until Israel learns the value of human life extends to the Palestinians as well then they will continue to treat them like shit and blow them to bits whenever they want to make a point.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

"until Israel learns the value of human life extends to the Palestinians as well"
The Nazis taught them otherwise, and they were good learners.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

That action should be a workers ban on Israel.
It is an apartheid state imposed by force on Palestine.
For one state in which both Israelis and Palestineans can live as equals.
For a Socialist Palestine.

"For a Socialist Palestine."
Hamas would be a much bigger obstacle than the Israeli army on the way to achieving that.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Hamas would be the bigger obstacle?

Who are you kidding? Unfortunately it seems not. It is common today for the Zionists to defend Israel as a 'democracy' against Islamic fundamentalism or even fascism. Let's see how this stacks up.

Religion is only a cover for the bourgeois class interests both sides. Zionism stands for the Israeli bourgeoisie. It is a claim to the state of Israel that tries to unite Israelis of all classes so the Zionist capitalists can exploit the Jewish and other labor in Palestine.

Islam as used by the Middle Eastern bourgeoisies for the same purpose, to unite the different classes in the respective countries behind their ruling classes, so that workers are blind to the need to unite as a class to overthrow these bourgeois national stooges.

Hamas is made up of a fraction of the Palestinian bourgeoisie who want an independent Palestine. It has won the loyalty of the majority of Palestinians away from Fatah because they think it is the only force that can do that.

However, Hamas, like Fatah before it, will do a deal with Israel at some point for a Palestine bantustan state. This will prove to the Palestinian masses that Hamas is not for real the end of Israel, or the right of return etc. As a result the Palestinian masses will, along with the masses of the other Middle Eastern states, take over the leadership of the anti-Zionist and anti-imperialist struggle.

Hamas, therefore, is not as big a barrier to the national independence of Palestine as the Zionist state.

The future is in the hands of the middle eastern masses as the future revolutionary force, as the resistance in Iraq proves, and as Hizbollahs defeat of Israel in 2006 proves.

Compare this class to the embattled Zionist ruling class which is already revealed as fascist in its criminal genocide in the occupied territory, Gaza and the South of Lebanon, reviled by world public opinion and fighting among itself over how to survive.

That's why the solution in Palestine is not a Palestinian bantustan but a socialist Palestine as part of a socialist federation of the Middle East.

Has everyone forgotten Apartied......Thats what this is...
Has everyone forgotten Palestines a Human Prison to demoralise Human Beings.....

But remember this......people have great memories.....and when the masters beg forgiveness from the slaves.....their woill be little forgiveness......
Roll on the new superpower China......at least they don,t practice racism....

Free Palestine...........Jews..your time is near......

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Gaza is an open air concentration camp; I'm not surprised they'd prefer to die on their feet than live on their knees. Basically, this is a result of a lack of progress in the peace talks. There'll be no progress in peace talks as long as Israel refuses to give any meaningful concessions. Israel will concede nothing as long as it has the unconditional support of the US. That is at the root of the problem.

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Israel is finished .. an unfortunate experiment in which the Jews failed miserably as human beings.

The Jews need to ask themselves what it is that they do and have done that makes them universally unpopular in their host nations.

The answer is the extreme bestiality and apartheid displayed by this religion from hell

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Those commenters above who decorate their hatred of the Jewish people with enthusiastic support for those oppressed by the Israeli state fool few readers here.

Kia kaha to those able to attend today's demo. May you face less violence than that encountered in London:

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

I believe the intelligence in US, UK and Israel are as good as what Hollywood has shown as in many movies, many series.
And I think that if Israel wanted to stop the rocket attack, they would have done it without killing babies, mothers, old people, without destroying big building, attacking hospitals...
So, the way Israel is massacring Gaza can be called any thing else then “a repost to Hams Rocket attacks” or a “defence strategy”!

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

It's a sad reality, though Islam is the fastest growing religion in the WORLD and I wonder why that is. I myself converted (reverted) in 1996 and I'm so proud to do so. My Palistinian sister here in Auckland lost her brother as he was getting water for their brother because there was no water in the hospital and then Irael dropped their bombs (three days ago) - tell me that Judaism is a religion of peace........

Re: Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday

it is not

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

Anti semites? Jew Haters?

whats to like about this nasty little apartheid grouping of land thieves?

These people also need to ask themselves why they became unpopular in nearly every nation that has hosted them.

Just as surely as Karma the Israeli,s will reap what they have sown. We need to have some of their leaders in shackles at the Hague to answer for what they have done to the Palestinians

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

"For a Socialist Palestine." The only way that you can have a (democratic) socialist Palestine is to send all the Zionists to their true Homeland: the United States of America. Victory to Hamas!

Re: Stop the Massacre in Gaza: Auckland Protest This Tuesday!

damn Israel , are you people forgetting or trying to forget that Israel are the only one who occupied palestine and they are not doing any thing else other than killing the palestinians day after day from the time they occupied the place . are you really blaming Hamas , the only group who put on its shoulders defending the place and people . why you people like to close your eyes on the truth when you all know it . so please stop it.
