(A) >>>>>Protest Israeli General Moshe Yaalon visiting Auckland>>>>>

Lieutenant General Moshe Ya’alon is currently touring Australia and will be coming to Wellington and Auckland. He is possibly one of the highest ranking military experts to visit New Zealand in the last 10 years. This is the same man who told Haaretz newspaper:

“The Palestinian threat harbors cancer-like attributes that have to be severed. There are all kinds of solutions to cancer. Some say it’s necessary to amputate organs but at the moment I am applying chemotherapy.”

Moshe Ya’alon is known as the ‘butcher of Qana’ for his role as head of Israeli Army intelligence when they deliberately bombed the Qana UN compound in 1996, killing 100.

A protest outside his speech has been organised by  Students for Justice in Palestine and the Palestine Human Rights Campaign.

Support the protest – War criminals, like Ya’alon are not welcome in Aotearoa-New Zealand!
When: 6.45pm, Tuesday 28th November
Where: AA (Alexander Astor) Hall, Kadimah College, Greys Ave  (Opposite YMCA, near Pitt St. Intersection)

"Remember the solidarity shown to Palestine here and everywhere… and remember also that there is a cause to which many people have committed themselves, difficulties and terrible obstacles notwithstanding. Why? Because it is a just cause, a noble ideal, a moral quest for equality and human rights." – Edward Said, Palestinian/American historian/political commentator \n
