Thanks Magda.

I might be able to get there.

I went to the Nakba commemoration at Paul Keating Park, Bankstown on May 15 last. The turnout was depressing--about 50-60 people.

I didn't get there Dawn, but the local media reports claimed about 1000 were at Sydney Town Hall last night.

9 murdered peace activists, 1400 murdered in Gaza...
End the siege of Gaza
Break ties with Israel
Rally 2pm, Saturday June 5
Sydney Town Hall
With the murder of peace activists who were attempting to carry much needed food, clothes and medicine to the besieged people of Gaza, the world is seeing the brutal crimes of Israel.

Now is the time we must act for justice - for those peace activists killed and injured, for the 1400 Gazan residents who were killed during Israel's war on Gaza, and for those who continue face occupation and injustice in Palestine.

We cannot allow such inhumanity to continue - ACT NOW for Palestine & human rights!

My Palestinian friend Yasser Ghannam just told me about this, Magda. He's a director of the Australian Palestinian Cultural Centre (they sponsored the Nakba commemoration in Bankstown on May 15).

Given the cultural diversity of Sydney, and with a bit of help from the weather Gods, it should be a massive turnout.

No doubt the Zionists will be hastily arranging a simultaneous 'Israel has the right to kill anyone it chooses' rally (under a different name of course) which would guarantee trouble, which of course is what they desire.
