January 4, 2009 -- Palestinian citizens of Israel held a massive protest
on January 3, 2009, in Sakhnin, an Arab city in northern Israel, against
Israel's war on the Palestinian people in Gaza. It was attended by up to
150,000 protesters. Crowds waving Palestinian flags and brandishing
pro-Palestinian placards chanted "Gaza will not surrender to the tanks
and bulldozers!" and "Don't fear, Gaza, we are with you!".
Meanwhile, Israel has begun its ground invasion of Gaza. Around the
world on January 3, solidarity demonstrations have been held, attended
by tens of thousands. Two thousand protested in South Africa outside the
United States Consulate in Johannesburg (statement see below).
Below /Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal/ is gathering
the most recent statements by Palestinian and solidarity organisations
and activists. More will be added as they come to hand.
