AUCKLAND: Candlelight vigil and protest march against Israeli terrorattack

Global Peace and Justice Auckland has organised a series of events to givepeople the opportunity to express the outrage and anger which is felt acrossthe community in the wake of the killing of at least nine humanitarian aidworkers on the flotilla of boats travelling to Gaza to break the Israeliblockade of the Gaza strip.

There will be a candlelight vigil this Friday evening from 5pm to 7pmoutside the US consulate in Customs Street which will mourn the deaths of theaid workers in the Israeli attack.

A protest march will gather at Aotea Square at 1pm this Saturday for a marchto the US consulate. We are asking people to bring old shoes which will bethrown at the building. Shoes have become a symbol of opposition to US andIsraeli policy in the Middle East after an Iraqi journalist hurled his shoes atUS President George Bush during a press conference a couple of years back.

The US consulate has been chosen as the focus because it is US policy whichblindly supports Israeli policy and which drives injustice and terrorism in theMiddle East.

GPJA will also continue to urge the government to –

1. Condemn the Israeli attacks on the Gaza convoy

2. Close the Israeli embassy in Wellington

3. Revoke the policy giving privileged access to New Zealand for youngIsraelis on working holidays

New Zealanders will work to intensify the international isolation of Israeljust as we did in the case of apartheid South Africa.
