Friends of Palestine prepares fourth rally for Gaza on Sat 2 August


12 noon Saturday 2 Augus

Murray Street Mall, Perth

Over the past three weeks, Israel's massacre of Gaza has killed more than 1000 Palestinians and wounded 6000, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. More than 200 of those killed have been children.

Israeli targets have included homes, mosques, schools, hospitals, medical centres, ambulances and power and water treatment plants. Even a UN-run school was targeted, killing 15 people and injuring hundreds of women and children who had sought refuge.

This Saturday, August 2, we will rally again to stand with the people of Gaza!

We call on the Australian government to: condemn Israel's attack on Gaza and impose diplomatic and trade sanctions on Israel. We call for support for the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.
