Rafah is under attack! Israel has surrounded 1.5 million Palestinians, who have sought refuge in Rafah after having their homes destroyed during four months of relentless bombing.
Since October 7, Israeli has killed 30,000 Palestinians in Gaza, two-thirds of them women and children, and injured 70,000 more.
Now half a million Palestinians, cut off from essential food supplies, are on the verge of starvation.
This humanitarian catastrophe is compounded by the suspension of funding to UNRWA - the United Nations aid agency in Palestine - by the Australian, US, UK and several European governments.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened a ground invasion by the beginning of Ramadan, on March 10, that threatens to kill tens of thousands more.
Amidst this horror, a global movement has arisen to demand an end to Western government support for Israel.
Join us to be a part of this global movement as we call on the Australian government to:
- end its support for Israel’s genocidal war
- cease all trade and diplomatic ties with apartheid Israel
- restore UNRWA humanitarian aid funding
- advocate for an arms embargo against Israel.
We will rally at 11am and march at 12 noon through Perth Streets.
We remind everyone that the struggle for a free Palestine is an anti-racist struggle. We condemn and oppose all forms of racism, including anti-semitism and Islamophobia. Ours is a struggle against the state of Israel, not against Jewish people, many of whom oppose Zionism, and who have a long history of being part of our movement for a free Palestine.
