The last kilometre for Palestine! I’ll be walking the last kilometre of the North Island section of Te Araroa this Friday 1 March. If you are in Wellington and can make it I’d love you to join me. It will be from Houghton Bay to Island Bay leaving Houghton Bay at 12 noon. Wear your Palestinian solidarity T shirt and bring flags and banners etc to support he struggle for freedom in Palestine. Please help spread the word to friends and family who are in Wellington and encourage them to join me.
I’ve walked over 1700 kilometres (from Cape Reinga to Wellington) since December 14th.
The New Zealanders and overseas visitors I have spoken with along the way are overwhelmingly supportive of the Palestinian struggle, this contrasts with our government which has a policy heavily skewed in support of Israel, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Winston Peters was soft on apartheid in South Africa in the 1980s and is soft on Israeli apartheid in 2019, he has failed to condemn new Israeli laws discriminating against Palestinians and the murder of unarmed Palestinian protesters by Israeli snipers during last years Great March of Return, he has not responded to requests for me to meet him in Wellington.
I’m wearing my third Palestinian T shirt because the other two fell apart along the way.
I’m encouraging people to donate to the Palestinian struggle. Donations can be made at Christchurch Progressive Network Account: 38-9017-0034814-00. Please reference Palestine.
