A powerfully impressive demonstration os some 20,000 or more surged through
the centre of Sydney yesterday ( Saturday 22/7/06) calling for an end to the
attack on Lebanon and condemning the role played Bush and the United States in
the phony claim of the Zionists to be acting in self defence.
The majority of the demonstration was made up of members of the arabic and
islamic communities in Sydney with political,religious and ethnic
differentiations put aside and the many thousands coming together in a united voice of
impressive outrage and determination.
Whilst they were a minority in the demonstration there were many leftists and
others opposed to the slaughter in the Lebanon who joined together with the
Arabic and Islamic communities to make it clear they completely rejected the
endorsement of Israel by the Howard government and the main leaders of the Labor
Before the demonstration there was a strong rally at the Town Hall Square in
the centre of Sydney adressed by community leaders, Labor Party
representatives and leading unionists.
The rally and demonstration were marked by the attendance of family groups,
impressive restratint by the demonstrators many of whom had spent much of the
week watching tv coverage of their homeland being blown apart with relatives
and friends slaughtered and all of this being blandly declared Israel's right
The whole rally and demonstration was impressively organised and marshalled
so that attempted provocation completely failed.
What has also failed in the last weeks is the foul attempt to foster a
so-called two state solution in the Middle East .This latest outrage carried out by
the Zionist state at the behest of its US masters makes it clear that the only
states that can exist beside Israel are those that are prepared to exist on
Every bomb that falls on Lebanon and Palestine, every missile that falls on
Lebanon and Palestine every innocent death brings thousands more to a grim
determination to live on their feet.
We on the left who are still free to speak without being blown to pieces can,
at the very least, reject the suck-up to imperialism two state lie.
