Yesterday, thousands took to the streets again to oppose Israel’s war crimes following the murder of peace activists aboard aid ships heading to break the siege of Gaza. The demonstration was to oppose these murders but also the general treatment of Palestinian people that are murdered everyday, particularly as a result of the the siege which has prevented Gaza City from rebuilding since the war in 2009.
Once again it was angry and loud, ending outside State Parliament with the crowd chanting “Israel! Terrorist!”
Of course, the issue is ongoing and there is probably going to be another demonstration this week. This is especially critical given that a second ship was boarded yesterday, the Rachel Corrie, named after the America solidarity activist that was run over by an Israeli bulldozer whilst he tried to protect a Palestinian home from demolition.
