March from Alpine Road to Felix Dlalimi Road
Ending rally at Overport Secondary School
Durban, South Africa

People Against Oppression comprising of a range of KZN civil society organisations is hosting a Palestine Solidarity Protest March and Rally on Saturday 2 June 2018 in Durban.

The protest is in solidarity with the Palestinian people who have experienced yet another brutal attack in their 70th year under occupation and dispossession. The ambitious dream of negotiations and peaceful dialogue have long since evaporated.

It is now up to the international community to take the cause to new heights and further sanction Apartheid Israel. While the world looks to Mandela’s nation and the success story that is South Africa, our country’s citizens continue the struggle for liberation in Palestine and other countries such as Sri Lanka.

Among the guests attending will be Reverend Ntuthuko Nkosi -spokesperson of Kairos Palestine Southern Africa and Bishop Rubin Phillip – Anglican Diocese of Natal.

Gaza medic killed by Israel was shot in the back. (VIDEO)
2 June 2018

Razan Ashraf Abdul Qadir al-Najjar, 21, was helping treat and evacuate wounded protesters east of Khan Younis when she was fatally shot in the back on Friday evening.

She was 22 years old.

She was about 100 meters away from the boundary fence with Israel at the moment she was shot and was wearing clothing clearly identifying her as a medic, the human rights group Al Mezan stated, citing eyewitnesses.

Al-Najjar had become known for her bravery and insistence on carrying out her medical rescue work despite the obvious danger.

Sad to read of the death o such a young medic. She was there to help and died from such a senseless killing. My heart goes to her family an all others who have suffered. I pray this March is in PEACE. Thanks Fly
