Melbourne Rally: Hands off Jerusalem - Solidarity with Palestine

Date/time: Wednesday, 13 December 2017, 6:00pm

Venue: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston St, Melbourne VIC

On Wednesday 6 December, US President Donald Trump announced the United States will recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and has announced plans to relocate the US Embassy there. This is violation of international law, as well as numerous UN resolutions and the Geneva Convention which the US is a signatory too. Now, more than ever, we need to make our voices heard to oppose the Israel apartheid and occupation, including the demolition and seizure of Palestinian lands, subjugation of the Palestinian people and to demand a just peace.

We are calling on all supporters of Palestine and Palestinian self-determination and human rights to join us at 6pm on Wednesday, 13 December at the State Library and stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and oppose Trump's blatant violation of International law.
