BDS Carols Dec 19th


Dear supporters of the Palestinian People

On the morning of Saturday 19th December Justice for Palestine Brisbane
will be serenading Mr Toys Toyworld customers, staff and passersby to
help them understand that buying Israel made goods for Christmas (or
ever) is not on.

We’ll use reworded Christmas carols to draw attention to the plight of
Palestinians, ignored in the holy land in the holy season, as a
contribution to the international BDS campaign.

You’re welcome to join us, we’ll provide the carols and may have a
social outing afterwards.

Meet at Reddacliff Place (south end of Queen Street Mall) just before
11am, Saturday 19th December, and we’ll go to Mr Toys Toyworld together.
If you come later find us there.

    HARK, THE HERALD ANGELS SING
    Lyrics: Anonymous

    Hark, the herald angels sing:
    “Look what’s really happening
    while you sing of peace on earth,
    eat and drink with festive mirth.
    Nations, open up your eyes.
    Stop the silence and the lies,
    and throughout the world proclaim:
    “There’s a Wall round Bethlehem!”
    Hark, the herald angels sing:
    “Look what’s really happening!”

    Symbol of our lack of peace,
    symbol that our woes increase;
    symbol of the hate and fear
    filling places far and near.
    If peace comes to Bethlehem,
    it will radiate to them.
    Nations, join with us to call
    For the downfall of the Wall.
    Hark, the herald angels sing:
    “Look what’s really happening!”

  2. Meanwhile in Palestine, Mary and Joseph hit the wall

    If Mary and Joseph tried to reach Bethlehem today they likely wouldn’t be able to make it; there’s a wall around the city. Palestinians have lived under an increasingly brutal occupation for almost 70 years. The occupation consists not only of intermittent wars (like in Gaza, the most densely populated place on Earth), but also complete Israeli control of Palestinians’ lives (through checkpoints, house demolitions, sieges).

    In 2005 Palestinians asked supporters to adopt the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) campaign to pressure Israel to recognise Palestinian human rights. We have taken up this call in relation to Mr Toys Toyworld, a shop that stocks toys made in Israel/the occupied Palestinian territories. Children suffer as a result of Israel’s occupation: over the past 18 months around 600 Palestinian children have been killed by Israel.

    We call on Mr Toys Toyworld to cease stocking products made in Israel/the occupied Palestinian territories, to cease playing their role in the degradation of Palestinians.
