RALLY - GUILDHALL SQUARE - SATURDAY 31st MARCH @ 3pm
This afternoon tens of thousands of Palestinian protesters participated in the 'Great March of Return' along the Gaza border. The protestors were demanding that they be allowed to return to their native land, of which they & their families were evicted from in 1948.
In response to the protest, Israeli tanks & snipers were positioned on the opposite side of the border. The snipers, under the direction of the state, fired live rounds indiscriminately at protestors.
This video shows the moment an unarmed demonstrator was struck down after a hail of sniper fire.
At present the Palestinian health ministry has confirmed that at least 17 people have been killed & 1,000+ wounded.
It is important that we all together as a collective stand in absolute solidarity with the Palestinian people at this time.
There must be an immediate end to be abuse of international law, the Israeli state have been able to act with impunity, whilst the European Union & others in the international community have stood idly by. This is not acceptable & cannot continue.
The international community need to challenge the actions of the Israeli state & ensure that they are held accountable for human rights abuses.
To the people of Palestine - you're not alone, we stand with you. The mainstream media may ignore today's events, but the people will not. We all have a part to play in exposing this brutal barbarity. Play your part, share & spread the word! #FreePalestine 🇵🇸
