With the death toll in Gaza climbing well above 3,000 and many more deaths anticipated, the mainstream media is full of headlines and stories either outright supporting Israel or tut-tutting both sides. Our leaders would like us to forget that 2.3 million Gazans have been living under siege for 16 years, and to ignore the brutal 75-year colonisation of Palestine.
Join us next Tuesday 24 October to hear from Omar Hassan, Victorian Socialists candidate and long-time Palestine solidarity campaigner. Let’s cut through the headlines together, unpack the history of Palestine and Israel and discuss what drives our rulers to back an apartheid state.
Whether you’re a long-time backer of Palestine or a new supporter who wants to learn more, this is the meeting for you!
