Kathy Newman from Justice for Palestine in Brisbane has sent us the following statement of support for the Boycott Israel 19.
Solidarity greetings from Justice for Palestine, Brisbane. We are outraged at the violent attack on the peaceful BDS protest outside Max Brenner on July 1. The Zionists and their supporters in government cannot stand the exposure of the daily violence, humiliation, torture and state sponsored terrorism perpetuated against the people of Palestine. The political and economic isolation of Israel is intensifying as more people of the world learn of the reality of Israeli apartheid. That’s why they are desperate to silence the BDS campaign internationally. But it won’t work. Taking its lead from the determined and unrelenting struggle of the Palestinian people the campaign has already demonstrated many times over that whenever they try to silence us, BDS activists will redouble our efforts.
In response to the brutal attack on the protest in Melbourne, we have decided to launch an all out effort to build a protest on August 27 against Max Brenner inBrisbane. We will launch this campaign at the BDS protest that will take place here this Saturday.
Justice for Palestine, Brisbane
