Palestine Inspires Global Resistance!

18-01-2009 12:49

Protest outside the U.S. embassy in Mexico City
Gaza is a harbinger of wider war against oppressed people of the world. We are on the eve of a global capitalist crisis. This means massive insecurity, cutbacks in ALL social programs, unemployment for millions.

Millions of working people will seek to fight back against a system of endless war and greater and greater divide of enormous wealth for a handful and poverty for the overwhelming majority. Increasingly they will identify with and take heart from the many forms of resistance they see around them.

The Genocide of a Nation, With the Full Support of the United States Government

18-01-2009 11:42

What is going on in the Gaza Strip is genocide, pure and simple. In all the barrage of rockets and missiles and whatever else Israel could shove down Palestine’s throat, “Israeli death squads” started moving through a Palestinian village separating the men from the women and children and then slaughtering the men, including young adults and teen-aged boys, shooting them in the back.

Police herd Gaza demo out of Kensington 17th January - video

18-01-2009 05:37

Video the thick yellow line
As the police blocked people marching from Trafalgar Square to the Kensington, causing chaos on many Westminster streets as a result, there was also a small demonstration at the Israeli embassy, with a massive police presence.

From 7pm the protesters were repeatedly told that their time was up, and that they had to leave the area, at 7:30 police began to push them out of the barrier cage towards Kensington High Street tube, but as on nearly every day people tried to take the road rather than the pavement. There was a standoff, and reinforcements were sent in before the protesters, now numbering around 80, were slowly marched into the underground station by at least 100 police in riot gear. Another 50 police and several horses remained at the embassy.
