Grey's Monument Protest in Newcastle Against the Criminal Israeli Attack on Gaza Freedom Flottilla
Gaza Flottilla Protest

After days in which the terrible news that 20 peace activists have been killed by the Israeli navy with others injured when they were part of the Freedom Flotilla taking aid to the beseiged people of Gaza, several hundred people gathered at the Monument Newcastle on Tuesday June 1st, 2010 to condemn the Israel's brutal killing of activists and show solidarity with the Freedom Flotilla Mission. The emergency protest organised by Tyneside Palestine Solidarity Campaign (TPS) and Tyneside Stop the War Coalition (TSWC) was chaired by Alex Snowden of the TPS. The Protest lasted an hour with speaker after speaker condemning the attack and also calling on the British government to condemn Israel and end its continued support for this criminal regime. Mahmoud Kurdi who had recently returned from the Viva Palestina convoy last year said that this was a desperate act by Israel because their criminal blockade was being broken and condemned world wide.

The protest ended with slogans in support of the Palestinan people and condemning Israel and its Anglo US backers. A beautiful and moving Palestinian poem was read out which had been written to condemn Israeli attack.

A Coach is now being organised for a National Emergency Protest in London on Saturday June 5th at 2pm.
