23 centres nationwide to protest Israeli/US genocide in Gaza and New Zealand joining the US-led war on Yemen


23 centres around New Zealand will protest this weekend against the government’s failure to call for an end to Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza (see list of events at the end of this advisory)

The protest will also focus on this week’s Luxon-government decision to join the US-led war on Yemen.

At a time when the vast majority of humanity is condemning the Israeli/US rampage in Gaza, our government is pushing against the tide to attack a group demanding an end to the genocide.

Alongside the US, we are giving the fingers to the world.

We are joining the wrong side in the most dangerous divide in world politics.

The National Party has been here before when they defended apartheid South Africa till the dying days of the racist regime. They are on a similar path with the racist, apartheid state of Israel.

National Day of Action against Port Companies

Saturday 27th January is also a national day of action aimed at port companies which service ZIM Shipping – the company bringing arms and ammunition into Israel. This action is incorporated into this week’s actions (see details on leaflet at the end of this advisory)

Leaflet for National Day of Action against our Port Companies


  1. Will there be facilities there to donate directly to Hamas and / or further terrorist organisations such as The Taliban / Isis?

    • Yes, and not only that, there will be a specialist there with all the information on how you can get that gender reassignment that you so desperately want, you’ll be able to finally come out to the world as Jane Brown.

      • Does the IDF have to slaughter women and children while they pretend to be remotely concerned about getting the hostages back? I don’t think asking that question has anything to do with “siding with the enemy”. The Israeli administration is every bit as feral as Hamas.

    • The real problem James is the terrorist state of Israel and the United States. Both terrorist States. Ever listened to Noam Chomsky the Jewish linguist, academic and public intellectual and citizen of the United States

      Let me know when you have watched that and read these books – then and only then will you understand why Hamas was elected in Palestine and if voting were held tomorrow Hamas would be re-elected.
