Justice for Palestine: Brisbane BDS Walking Tour

Justice for Palestine presents

The first Brisbane BDS walking tour
Boycott Divestment Sanctions against Apartheid Israel
Horrors of Apartheid exposed in Brisbane city

Saturday, August 25
Assemble 10:50am. Tour from 11am-12noon

Justice for Palestine needs your support for our next Boycott Divestment Sanction action in Brisbane on Saturday the 25th of August – the first Brisbane BDS walking tour – meeting at 11.50 at King George Square.  Please join the Facebook event and promote and share the action with your friends and anyone who supports our campaign. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/events/321613724597176/  or RSVP to contact@justiceforpalestinebrisbane.org

Continuing our commitment to the creative protests which have been the hallmark of the BDS movement around the world, we have planned a one hour walking tour through Brisbane to reveal to “tour” participants products of the apartheid state that should be boycotted. We encourage people to bring a camera with a flash and dress as a tourists.

The creative nature of our protests however do not diminish the seriousness of our cause. The situation in Palestine continues to deteriorate with a dramatic increase in house demolitions and the expansions of settlements. Thousands face a new round of ethnic cleansing, and for those already exiled the right of return remains a distant dream. The apartheid system is being consolidated with new laws and practices and the possible annexation of part of, or the entire West Bank.

But resistance continues and the people of Palestine desperately need international support. We have dedicated the BDS walking tour action to the heroic hunger strikers languishing in Israeli gaols who often taking themselves to the edge of death, have challenged their arbitrary detention and imprisonment and won some concessions and some releases.  Popular movements continue to challenge the occupation and the ongoing theft of land and exiled Palestinians are rebuilding their grassroots political organisations.

Internationally the grassroots boycott divestment and sanctions campaign continues to challenge the impunity of the apartheid state of Israel with divestment campaign success in churches, local authorities and universities. http://www.bdsmovement.net/2012/bds-at-7-9206  A number of governments such as that of South Africa, and possibly a number of European governments are beginning to demand the labelling of products from the illegal settlements.

Now more then ever we need to expose and challenge the Apartheid state of Israel and the entrenched and growing complicity of the Australian political elite.

Please share with your networks.

Gather at King George Square where walking tour guides will explain the BDS campaign and sites of significance in Brisbane City

Dress as a tourist with big hat and flash camera

At each location we will deliver a letter calling on the store management to stop selling the products of apartheid Israel.
