Perth rallies for Gaza

Up to 200 people rallied for Gaza in Perth city on November 25. The demonstration was organised by Friends of Palestine WA.

The rally adopted the following demands:

As a matter of urgency, we call upon the Australian government to:

  • unreservedly condemn Israel's attacks on targets across Gaza, including schools, homes, government buildings, media centres, electricity transformers, and other infrastructure
  • use any and all diplomatic means required to ensure Israel cannot renew its assault on Gaza
  • propose that Israel be forced to pay war reparations
  • demand the immediate and unconditional lifting of the siege of Gaza
  • suspend all economic, diplomatic and military ties with the state of Israel until it complies with international law and accedes to a just settlement with the people of Palestine
