End Israel's Violence Against Palestinian Youth
Resistance: Young Socialist Alliance condemns the killing of three Palestinian youth by Israeli security forces and settlers in the past 24 hours. They have joined the nearly 500 Palestinians who have been injured by the Israeli occupation forces since clashes began several days ago. Abdel-Rahman Abeidallah, only 13 years old, was shot by the occupation forces after clashes near the al-Aidah refugee camp. He was just one of the three young people murdered by the Israeli occupation forces. The forces of the Israeli occupation have been escalating their brutal campaign against the people of Palestine, both in the West Bank and Gaza, in support of the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories. Resistance: Young Socialist Alliance calls on the Australian government to withdraw its ongoing support for the apartheid regime in Israel and extends its solidarity to the Palestinian resistance movement. Palestinian youth are at the center of the resistance to the illegal occupation and continue to inspire other young activists around the world. We condemn efforts by the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu to destroy the homes of so called “stone throwers”. Throwing stones is a legitimate response to decades of ethnic cleansing, bombing and land-grabs. Resistance: Young Socialist Alliance also reaffirms its ongoing commitment to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign which seeks to isolate and marginalise the apartheid regime in Israel and seeks to build international support for the people of Palestine. No Justice, No Peace! Solidarity with the Palestinian Resistance! End the Occupation!
