Gaza commemoration 27 Dec 09

War on GAZA - 1st anniverary

On 27 December 2008, without warning, Israeli forces began a devastating bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip codenamed "Cast Lead". By 18 January 2009, some 1400 Palestinians had been killed and large areas of Gaza had been razed to the ground.

Join us in a mock funeral procession to mourn the victims of the Gaza massacre by wearing as much black as possible!

Sunday 27 December 2009
12 noon, Wesley Church (cnr Hay & William Sts)

This coming Saturday is the big Walk Against Warming march – part of on an international day of action timed to coincide with the Copenhagen climate summit.

Green Left Weekly and Socialist Alliance will be participating in the march as part of the “Climate emergency bloc”. This bloc will be saying “set the targets the planet needs” such as:
  • Climate justice for the third world
  • No emissions trading
  • Phase out Coal
  • 100% renewables by 2020
We will also be campaigning to spread the message that we need a people’s power movement to ensure that the changes we need happen.

We need your help!
Can you help by:
  • Distributing Green Left on the day?
  • Handing out leaflets?
  • Holding a banner or placard?
If so, please phone Alex on 9218 9608 or 0413 976 638 to volunteer. Your help will make a difference!

The Walk begins 11am. We will meet at PICA (Northbridge Cultural Centre) from 10am.

Yours in solidarity

Cuba: Sustainability & Socialism - Resistance forum Wed 9 Dec

Come find out both some of the measures that Cuba has used to         become environmentally responsible, and the structures and political institutions that made this         possible.

       As the world faces catastrophic climate change, there has never been a more important time for        us to learn from the worlds best green example, so we can learn the lessons from Cuba's                     experiance and reproduce them to create a sustainable Australia.
