MARCH AGAINST APARTHEID ISRAEL!
Saturday 4 November 2006
From Mary Fitzgerald Square (opposite Market Theatre)
To Gauteng Provincial Legislature @ 10AM
Given the appalling history of apartheid in our country, we as a people can no longer stand by and watch as Israel, an Apartheid State, continues to brutalise, expel and ethnically cleanse all the non-Jewish people of Palestine. This is being done in a brutal and inhumane effort to maintain Jewish Supremacy.
Today much of Palestine has been stolen, millions have been forced off their lands and into refugee camps, an Apartheid Wall further dehumanises and impoverishes its people, and the siege of Gaza and many other villages has left thousands destitute. Yet the world watches helplessly as the suffering continues unabated. We all recognise the need to intensify our struggle to isolate this racist regime, but we sit idly in our comfort zones unwilling to stand up for humanity.
We must demand that the South African government breaks all diplomatic relations and impose sanctions on the racist Israeli state!
As Muslims, we are against all forms of oppression, injustice and racism. Our humanity does not only stretch out to ‘our’ people. We support all those oppressed people of the world in Darfur, Sri Lanka, Australia, Palestine, Iraq and all over the world. As Muslims we MUST take this opportunity to once again show our support for the Palestinian people. Together with all peace loving South Africans we will march from the Market Theatre to the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, this Saturday, November 4 2006.
May God send his help and blessing to all the oppressed people all over the world!
