Yaser Murtaja was a 31 year old Palestinian man from Gaza City. He was a father and a husband. He was also a renowned photojournalist.

On April 6, 2018 he was covering a Palestinian demonstration at the Israeli border. Despite the fact that he was taking photographs and was wearing a blue vest that indicated he was a journalist, Yaser was shot and killed by an Israeli sniper.

5 weeks later, 60 Palestinians were killed in a demonstration at the Gaza fence, in a single day.

If you believe that Yaser Murtaja’s life mattered, then come meet us at the clock in Grand Central so we can tell Yaser Murtaja’s story.

Toulouse: Israeli Ambassador Not Welcome!
Wednesday, 23 May
6:30 pm
CCI
2 Rue Alsace Lorraine
Toulouse, France
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/789590711428835/

Stop the Israeli crimes! The Israeli ambassador is not welcome in Toulouse. Shame on those who roll out the red carpet stained with Palestinian blood.

The blood of the over 120 dead Palestinians and thousands of wounded since 30 March is not yet dry, and a gala dinner is being organized on 23 May in the salons of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Toulouse, with the participation of the Mayor of Toulouse, a vice-president of the region and, as the guest of honor, the Israeli ambassador representing a racist, colonial state that has systematically perpetrated massacres against the Palestinian people for 70 years.

This propaganda-business operation occurs when, aside from the USA and a few satellites, the entire planet – and even, lately, President Macron! – has condemned the bloody repression against unarmed demonstrators seeking their right to return to the lands from which they were dispossessed in 1948 and the lifting of the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip that has lasted for nearly 11 years.

To justify the gala dinner, a conference is being organized on “Israeli innovation,” an undignified celebration at a time when Israeli companies have received nearly a half-billion dollars in European public money, when European agencies are buying Israeli drones, some of which are being tested in Gaza.

We must put an end to impunity and the Israeli occupation and apartheid regime by building our solidarity with the Palestinian people, in particular through the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign (the State of Israel must be sanctioned and held accountable for its crimes.) With a priority demand: no weapons from Israel, no weapons for Israel.

We salute and support the Palestinian resistance – Sumoud – and the Great Return March. Long live Palestine, liberated from the regime of Israeli oppression and apartheid!

RASSEMBLEMENT le 23 mai à 18h30
devant la CCI, 2 rue Alsace Lorraine – M° Esquirol ou Carmes

Halte aux crimes israéliens !
L’ambassadrice d’Israël n’est pas la bienvenue à Toulouse
Honte à celles et ceux qui lui déroulent un tapis
rouge du sang des Palestinien.ne.s

Le sang des Palestiniens – plus de 120 morts, des milliers de blessés depuis le 30 mars – n’est pas encore sec qu’un dîner de gala est organisé le 23 mai dans les salons de la Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie de Toulouse avec la participation du Maire de Toulouse, d’une vice-présidente de la région et, comme invitée « d’honneur » l’ambassadrice d’Israël représentante d’un Etat raciste et colonial auteur de massacres méthodiques du peuple Palestinien depuis 70 ans.

Cette opération de propagande-business survient alors qu’à part les USA et quelques satellites, l’ensemble de la planète (et même tardivement le Président Macron !) condamne la répression par un bain de sang des manifestants désarmés qui revendiquent depuis le 30 mars leur droit au retour sur les terres dont ils ont été dépossédés en 1948 et la levée du blocus israélien sur la bande de Gaza qui dure depuis près de 11 ans.

Pour justifier le dîner de gala est organisée une conférence sur« La valorisation de l’innovation Occitanie -Israël… ». Une collaboration indigne à l’heure où les entreprises israéliennes auraient touché près d’un demi-milliard d’argent public européen, à l’heure où des agences européennes se fournissent en drones israéliens dont certains sont testés à Gaza.

Il faut mettre fin à l’impunité, et au régime d’occupation et d’apartheid israélien, en développant notre solidarité avec le peuple palestinien, en particulier par la campagne Boycott Désinvestissement Sanctions (l’État d’Israël doit être sanctionné et rendu comptable de ses crimes). Avec pour exigence prioritaire : pas une arme d’Israël, pas une arme pour Israël.

Nous saluons et soutenons la résistance palestinienne – Soumoud – et la marche du retour. Vive la Palestine libérée du régime d’oppression et d’apartheid israélien !

Freedom Flotilla Sets Sail to Challenge Israel’s Blockade of Gaza (VIDEO)
May 22, 2018

A four-ship Freedom Flotilla has set sail for the Gaza Strip to challenge Israel’s decade-old blockade of the besieged territory.

The Al-Awda, Arabic for The Return, vessel set sail a week ago from Norway and linked up with three other boats in Copenhagen, Denmark on Sunday, before beginning a tour of European ports which will end in the Gaza Strip.



A statement said:


“In response to the brutal Israeli blockade, for seven years, the Freedom Flotilla Coalition has carried out non-violent direct actions aimed at raising international awareness and putting pressure on the international community to end it. We will continue to put pressure on our governments and protest their complicity with Israel’s crimes against humanity.”

The boat was named to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or Catastrophe, in which more than 700,000 Palestinians fled or were forcibly expelled from their homes during the establishment of the Israeli state.

A spokesperson of the flotilla told Al Araby Al Jadeed that the participants want to send a message that:


“The Palestinian cause is not alone or isolated; many freemen around the world are advocates for this just cause”

This year’s freedom flotilla comes just weeks after Israeli forces opened fire on demonstrators in Gaza protesting for the right of return, killing more than 60.

“The blockade of Gaza is in its 11th year. It is such a gross violation of international law that it can be characterized as a crime against humanity,” participant Mikkel Grüner, a Danish national who is city councilor in Bergen, Norway, said.

Volunteers will join the multinational fleet for different legs of the journey, with a select group assigned to participate in the final run to Gaza.

The flotilla schedule will be kept confidential to guard against interference. In the past, mechanical failures have affected previous flotilla attempts, with allegations Israel may have tampered with the ships.
