Recognise Palestine Walk 2016


In 2014 Dr Marcelo Svirsky walked from Sydney to Canberra in support of Palestinian human rights.

In 2015 John Salisbury walked from Sydney to Canberra in support of Palestinian human rights.

And now John Salisbury is going to walk again to Canberra carrying a petition to the House of Representative asking the Australian Government to recognise the State of Palestine.

John says, "From 2-11 October 2016 I will once again walk from Sydney to Canberra in support of Palestinian human rights. The walk will follow the path of a similar endeavour in 2014 led by Israeli academic Dr Marcelo Svirsky and the same walk by myself in 2015. I will carry with me a petition asking our elected representatives to formally recognise the state of Palestine. Over 130 countries have formally recognised Palestine. Why not Australia?"

2-11 October 2016

From Sydney Opera House to Parliament House Canberra

John will start his walk 9am, Sunday 2 October, at the Sydney Opera House - be there!
