It has been 5 months of genocide. This is how Israel is intensifying its decades-long violence, wiping out a piece of Palestine and its people, and leaving those surviving with no means to go on.
5 months and the world has not stopped bloodshed nor the cries nor the growling stomaches of starved children. It has not prevented the destruction of more than half of the buildings in Gaza nor the displacement of 80% of the population. All this happening while the threat of fully invading Rafah is approaching, opening up a new disastrous chapter in this endless assault.
While this happens the West Bank is suffocating under the intensification of the brutal military occupation.
It is experiencing daily and deadly raids to its towns, villages and refugee camps, and its men, women and children are facing brutal and humiliating arrests. All this is accompanied by settlement expansion and settler violence, while further subjugating the Palestinians, leaving them no space to move, breathe and live in dignity.
We will not allow this to go on. A genocide cannot go on if we want to live in a world where justice prevails.
The infrastructure of oppression, and the apparatus of colonial domination orchestrated by the Zionist entity against Palestinians in all their whereabouts must be dismantled.
From the imperial core, we will not abandon the Palestinians, nor their cause, nor their aspirations to live in a free homeland from the river to the sea.
Join our demo on Saturday 2nd March, 12:00pm at St. Peter’s Square.
In what would have been the weekend of the Palestine marathon that is cancelled this year we will be joined by runners from Run the Wall and cyclists from the Big Ride for Palestine calling for freedom and justice for all Palestinians.
