Solidarity for Gaza in Perth

Seventy five people took part in an emergency solidarity action for Gaza called at 24 hours notice on November 16.

Speakers highlighted that this was an aggressive action by Israel - which is the occupying power - and the excuses given for the attack don't stack up to scrutiny.

Children - including 11 month old baby Omar - were among the first victims of Israel's "surgical strikes" against "militants".

At the end of the demonstration, people voted to organise a solidarity rally on Sunday 25 November, 1pm in the Murray Street Mall, Perth City.
