Support the children of Gaza at an awareness raising and commemorative event in Bristol
A powerful event for the suffering children of besieged Gaza
Saturday 31st May 3.30 – 5.30pm
Bristol Palestine Centre and Museum
The Arc, 27 Broad St, Bristol, UK
At the beginning of 2009, Israel launched a devastating assault on the civilian population of Gaza, targeting families with children in a barbaric act of ethnic cleansing. The assault left Gaza in ruins, and Israel followed this up with a siege that has prevented the suffering families of Gaza from rebuilding their shattered land, or having enough medical supplies for the sick and injured.
On the night of the 31st of May 2010, a flotilla of humanitarian aid ships, bound for Gaza with building cement and medical supplies, was assaulted on the high seas in an act of war that left nine dead and dozens seriously injured. The aid was stolen. The suffering in Gaza continues.
The BBC, and many other journalists and politicians in Britain and the USA, have deliberately covered up for all this, putting out lies as news and libelling the victims of Israeli assault. Most people in Britain don’t know the shocking story of what’s happened to the children of Gaza, or what happens to aid workers who try to help, because Britain officially supports the murderers and abusers.
But the truth will be told. We will commemorate the slaughtered innocents. And we will stand together to support the victims of crime against humanity, and oppose all those who commit or cover up for those crimes.
