Why you should stand with Palestine – public meeting


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.

What to expect

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!
