We will show our solidarity with all those who are in the dark and cold because of an inhuman siege, while our cities are illuminated. And together we will send a strong message to our leaders who are complicit in a deadly blockade that starves, despairs and slowly kills two million women, men and children.
How can we accept such a genocide in the 21st century? Total imprisonment for more than 10 years, imposed by Israel with the complicity of Egypt, bombing, deprivation of drugs, drinking water and electricity.

The Guardian Australia reported the 1 million-strong rally in Paris that was led by leading figures in the US Alliance: “Here were some of the most powerful people on earth jostling for space in the Paris boulevard named after Voltaire, the French Enlightenment writer, historian and advocate of freedom of religion and speech. The leaders then set off, arm in arm, Hollande in the centre, the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, and the Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, to his left. To his right, Ibrahim Boubacar Këita, the president of Mali – where French troops intervened to push back Islamist forces in 2013 – the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, and the British prime minister, David Cameron. As they marched, the crowds that lined the route broke into cheers and applause” (see “Paris anti-terror rally: all religions, ages and nations in a massive show of unity”, The Guardian Australia, 12 January 2015).
What hypocrisy by these leaders and the covering media. Thus rally-attendees Francois Hollande, Angela Merkel and David Cameron are major players in the post-1990 Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide in which 12 million Muslims have been killed by violence or by violently-imposed deprivation and Western governments of the US Alliance in 2015 are variously bombing and killing Muslims from Mali to Pakistan (Google “Muslim Holocaust Muslim Genocide”). Apartheid Israeli prime minister and rally-attendee, Binyamin Netanyahu, is key figure in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide in which 2 million Indigenous Palestinians have been killed by violence (0.1 million) or by violently-imposed deprivation (1.9 million) since 1936 and of about 12.5 million Palestinians, about 6.5 million are prevented from even stepping foot in their own country, 4.3 million are held hostage without human rights in West Bank mini-Bantustan ghettoes or in the Gaza Concentration Camp, and only 7%, the adults of 1.7 million Palestinian Israelis, are permitted to vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, albeit as Third Class citizens denied even freedom of speech under Nazi-style Israeli Apartheid laws.
