Cardiff Castle, a potent symbol of occupations in Wales since the time of the Romans, is itself being peacefully occupied by a group of concerned citizens in solidarity with the people of Palestine.
This action is to remind people:
That the Palestinian tragedy goes on.
That Palestine is still being illegally occupied by the Israeli State after almost 40 years.
That Israel continues to build the “Apartheid Wall” in direct contravention of UN General Assembly Resolution ES-10/13 which called upon Israel to “stop and reverse the construction of the wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory”.
We are calling on Peter Hain, Secretary of State for Wales to stand out against the Apartheid regime in Israel in the same way that he stood out against Apartheid in South Africa

FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR PALESTINE
Israel has now withdrawn from Lebanon and the eyes of the world's media have turned elsewhere, but the people of Palestine continue to suffer.
In the last month over 200 Palestinians have been killed or seriously injured as a result of Israeli military action within the Palestinian Territory.
Early on the morning of Wednesday 8th November, Israel launched a barrage of shells on a residential area in Beit Hanun, killing at least 19 Palestinian civilians, including eight children and four women, and wounding over 40.
Even before this latest atrocity, Israel had killed over 63 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip in just a week.
Palestine and Israel
An unequal struggle
