Palestine Action Group
Victorian Socialists is establishing a Palestine Action Group to bring together members and supporters who are active, or who want to get active, in the Palestine solidarity campaign.
Many VS members are long-term Palestine solidarity campaigners, whether through participation in groups like Free Palestine Melbourne, or as activists with Students for Palestine or the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
Since the beginning of Israel's genocidal war on Gaza, we've stepped up our activity. VS members have played a role in organising and have had contingents at the weekly mass rallies on Sundays. Some are involved with organising for Palestine in their workplaces and trade unions, and others with the Students and High-School Students for Palestine groups.
We want to continue these activities, and potentially also expand into new areas. Establishing a VS Palestine Action Group is part of maximising the impact of our work. We hope the group can provide a space for sharing information and ideas, planning VS activities, and finding opportunities to coordinate our activities across different areas of work.
