Our understanding of the crisis within the region has been shaped by the words of journalists, allowing for the strategic filtering of the violent nature of the ongoing occupation, ethnic cleansing and genocide committed against the Palestinian people for the past 73 years.
Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
Around 30 staff and students gathered in front of Fisher Library today to stand in solidarity with Palestinians’ struggle against Israeli apartheid. Organised by Students for Palestine and Sydney Staff for BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), the protest was part of a global Israeli Apartheid Week.
Sydney University SRC Welfare Officer, Owen Marsden Readford, stressed that it was important for people to come out in solidarity due to the complicity of Australia in the Israeli apartheid. “Our government [funds] Israel. Our university [has] deals with weapons manufacturers … the very tools that are used to enforce genocide and dispossession in Palestine”.
