In protest to the recent attacks on Palestinians by Israeli troops, the Anti-War Coalition and the Workers international Vangaurd League has organised a march from the corner of Adderly and Darling Street in Town today. Protesters in the middle East have shown their anger by burning Israeli and US flags.
Spokesperson Shaheed Mohamed says over 300 Palestinians have died in the massacre so far and that South Africans need to show support to those who have suffered.
“We are calling on workers to implement sanctions on Israel. If government won’t do it, we are calling on workers to stand up. We are asking for people to come forward. Let the people of South Africa speak out,” said Mohamed.
