Global Peace and Justice Auckland ( have organised a protest this Saturday which we urge you all to attend.
Protest: Mt Eden Prison, Boston Road, Mt Eden. Saturday 19th May 1pm – 2pm

Five Iranians are being held in Auckland’s Mt Eden prison without charge or trial. Ali Reza Panah (detained 18 months) and Amir Mohebbi (detained now for more than three years despite having 3 young kiwi children) are two of the five. Thomas Yadegary was in a similar situation but was released after a public campaign. The five remaining Iranians must also be released. Let’s make this a protest that can’t be ignored. Please make a big effort to be there. We can’t protest outside Guantanemo Bay but we can at Mt Eden!

Setting Sail to Break the Siege of Gaza from Free Gaza- Break the Siege (
This summer – forty years after the Israeli seizure and occupation of
the West Bank and Gaza Strip – international, Palestinian and Israeli
civilians will sail to Gaza to challenge Israeli control and isolation
of the 1.4 million Palestinians who live there. The project is
intended to awaken the conscience of the nations of the world, who
have turned their backs on a people whose human rights, welfare and
very existence are being sacrificed to political expediency.

“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
