Gaza Freedom Flotilla Massacre: London Demo (Lindsey German, Betty Hunter, Tariq Ali)

Stop the War Press Release: Israeli terror on the high seas

Monday 31 May 2010

The killing of at least 10 people and the injuring of many more on board the flotilla taking aid to Gaza is the latest in a series of crimes which should see Israel condemned under international law. The 600 protesters were on a peaceful mission and unarmed.

Israel has repeatedly flouted law and public opinion worldwide in its treatment of the Palestinians. Its bombing of Gaza in 2009 and its continued blockade has caused outrage round the world. The flotilla was an attempt to bring aid to the blockaded population of Gaza. It was supported by many organisations and individuals internationally.

The decision by Israel to attack the flotilla with such loss of human life shows its arrogant and deadly intent in opposing any aid to the Palestinians.

The British and EU governments should immediately condemn this act of terror and break all links with Israel.

The Stop the War Coalition will be joining other organisations at 2pm today to demonstrate outside Downing Street.
