It is time for the New Zealand government to stop enabling and emboldening Israels apartheid state oppression and war crimes against the people of Palestine. New Zealand parliament should move to boycotting, divesting, desist NZ companies or military for working with the Israeli state, and work with the United Nations in sanctioning Israel, to prevent further war crimes and atrocities against Palestine from occurring.
Many of us are in shock and horror at what is currently happening in Palestine.
Show up to a protest near you this Saturday the 15th in solidarity, and to put pressure on the NZ government to take steps, including boycotting, divesting and sanctioning Israel.
Here is a recently released article about what is currently happening in Gaza.
This month Human Rights Watch recognised that the treatment of Palestinians is the definition of apartheid. You can read Palestine Solidarity Network Aotearoa’s report and information about this here
