UK: Stand Up For Gaza, London

25 January 2009, 14:00 – 16:00, Ealing Town Hall, New Broadway, Ealing, London

West London will send a message of solidarity to Gaza and a message of action to our government. A local based movement with a passion and commitment towards justice. WLMA will lead the way to unite the community in the first of many campaigns. Hope you can join us.


The demonstration this Sunday 25th January will call for the lifting of the Gaza blockade, an end to all arms sales to Israel and for Israel to be made to pay for its war crimes.

We will also be registering our disgust over Gordon Brown\’s support for Israel following its barbaric attack. The day after the massacre was ended – so as not to spoil Barack Obama\’s inauguration with pictures of phosphorous bombs dropping on UN schools in Gaza – Brown rushed off to join five other heads of government for a celebratory gala dinner at the Jerusalem home of Israel\’s prime minister Ehud Olmert, alongside Olmert\’s compatriots in mass murder, defence minister Ehud Barak and foreign minister Tzipi Livni.

\”Thank you for demonstrating your impressive support for the State of Israel\”, said Olmert, \”This is in the supreme interest of all those who fight the forces of evil,\” among whom he no doubt meant the 450 children in Gaza killed by Israel over the past three weeks.

To which Brown replied, without a sliver of irony, \”The task before us is an end to arms trafficking.\” Not of course the arms trafficking which makes Israel the fourth most powerful military in the world, able to use the most advanced weapons of mass slaughter to kill 1400 Palestinians and injure 6000 more.

Come and Stand Up For Gaza.
