World Protests Against Israel attack on Gaza


Thousands of strikers in Australia and across the world rallied at the weekend to oppose Israel’s crimes in Gaza, which has left more than 400 Palestinians and 20 Israelis dead. Schoolchildren led thousands of strikers over Sydney’s CBD, yesterday, demanding an end to the violence. A crowd of more than 2,000 strikers marched down George St, waving placards and flags. They chanted: “In our thousands, in our millions, we are all Palestinian.” It is Sydney’s second major pro-Palestine rally in two weeks. Melbourne held its second demonstration on Saturday, too, with an estimated 5,000 people taking to the streets. Deputy Federal Opposition leader Tanya Plibersek said an end to the conflict was now needed. “Of course the rockets must stop,” Ms Plibersek told reporters on Sunday. “Hamas must agree to a ceasefire, and I also urge Israel to ensure that any response to that rocket fire is proportionate and spares the lives of civilians.”.
