Subject: MY 172nd OPEN MESSAGE TO ALL PEOPLE OF GOOD WILL
MY 172nd OPEN MESSAGE TO ALL PEOPLE OF GOOD WILL
The very important message below was emailed to me last night (Melbourne time). It is by Sawt el Amel, the Palestinian workers organisation centered in Nazareth, and it is calling for a strike on the 1st of October.This strike should become a general strike throughout historic Palestine !
Down with zionist fascism and racism !
Viva Palestina !
The organization Sawt el Amel, who by its constitution works to protect and care for the workers and the unemployed calls upon the Arab workers in Israel to participate in the general strike on the 1st of October, the 10th Memorial Day for the Al Aqsa and Al Quds Intifada, (the Second Intifada).
During the Second Intifada 13 young martyrs were killed and hundreds were injured and arrested, inside the green line, during demonstrations in the Arab Villages and Cities. We call upon the Arab working class to remember the martyrs and the injured who fought to protect our honor and to challenge the Israeli oppressors.
The 13 martyrs killed during the Al-Aqsa Intifada
The systematic Israeli persecution and suppression of its Arab citizen has after the second intifada continued through measures such as:
- Demolishing entire villages and houses, especially in the Naqab, displacing the indigenous Bedouin population
- Persecuting the Arab political parties and the Arab leaders and strugglers, placing them in jail on vague grounds and by using unlawful methods, such as in the cases of: Mr. Raed Salah, Mr.Omar Zaid and Mr. Ameer Makhoul
- Oppressing our youth when they through demonstrations show their solidarity and support with our people in Gaza
The policies clearly shows that the intifada might be over but the battle for justice and equality has just begun and it is important for the Arab workers as a part of the Palestinian population to stand up and remember the lost martyrs and carry on the fight for our right to equal opportunity.
Sawt el Amel would like to stress that the Arab working class within the green line is the largest group among the Palestinian population and it is extremely important that this group will participate in the demonstrations for its impact and success. Any restrictions to participate in the strike facing the workers from their employers should be directly reported to Sawt el Amel. We would like to remind the employers that the workers have a legitimate reason to participate in the general strike and there should be no form of pressure by the employer to force the worker from participating in the strike.
Sawt el Amel confirms that any cases of dismissals or threats directed towards the workers will be challenged by Sawt el Amel and we will not hesitate to expose and take legal actions against the employers.
According to Sima Knane, representing Sawt el Amels legal department, participation in the general strike is a part of every citizen's freedom of speech, which can not and should not be compromised. There are several verdicts from the labor courts confirming this position. Especially Sawt el Amel has a rich experience from this issue by representing, among others, workers who were fired and attacked by Jewish settlers during the Intifada in 2000.
We urge all workers to participate in the general strike and if inflicted by any reprimands by their employers to contact Sawt el Amel."
Would the Palestinian leaders in occupied Palestine join the strike and call on all Palestinian workers to participate ? Would they also withdraw their approval of the continued betrayal by Raji Sourani of myself and my children to the ongoing zionist Gestapo torture here, in Australia ?
" I protest the continuous torture of the Australian citizen Benjamin Merhav by sleep deprivation and his daughter and son by psychiatric torture in Melbourne, Australia.
This torture is perpetrated against Benjamin Merhav directly by the clandestine arm of the State of Israel (the zionist Gestapo), and indirectly by the same culprit against Benjamin's daughter and son.
I demand that the Australian government instruct ASIO to protect these Australian citizens, and stop these terrorist crimes by a foreign government on Australian soil immediately !"
2. to ICJ-Australia and ICJ Secretariat (email firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org ) a message along the following lines :
"I protest your refusal to investigate Benjamin Merhav's complaint against the Australian government's approval of ASIO's violation of the rule of law in Australia, regarding the continuous torture in Melbourne of himself, his daughter and his son , all Australian citizens, by the clandestine arm of the State of Israel (the zionist Gestapo).
I demand your immediate intervention to protect these Australian citizens, to stop the perpetration of these terrorist crimes In Australia, and to end these violations of the rule of law by the Australian government in Australia."
3. to the PCHR and to all the Palestinian leaders in occupied Palestine ( email email@example.com ;
firstname.lastname@example.org ) message along the following
"I protest the betrayal of Benjamin Merhav by Raji Sourani to the zionist Gestapo's torture. I demand Sourani's replacement on the ICJ and on FIDH with a honest Palestinian patriot who would initiate protest action against the torture of Benjamin Merhav, his daughter, and his son by the zionist Gestapo in Australia.
I demand that the Palestinian leaders encourage Palestinians and their supporters to protest this ongoing terrorist torture by the zionist Gestapo, and to demand that it should stop immediately."
DISBAND NOW THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF
ISRAEL !A JUST SOLUTION TO THE ZIONIST CONFLICT IN PALESTINE CANNOT BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT FIRST DISBANDING THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF ISRAEL !
FOLLOWING THE DISBANDING OF THIS RACIST REGIME, A DEMOCRATIC, NON-RACIST STATE, TO WHICH ALL THE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES WOULD BE INVITED TO RETURN, SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED ON THE ENTIRE AREA OF HISTORIC PALESTINE !
THIS SHOULD BE WRITTEN INTO THE PLATFORM OF THE BDS MOVEMENT NOW, AS THE PURPOSE OF THE INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF ISRAEL !
