400 attend "snap" action in Melbourne and call for an end to Israel's bombing of Gaza

Dear friends,
on 17 November, approximately 400 people attend a snap action in Melbourne to protest Israel's bombing of Gaza.  The protest called for an end to the bombing, end to Australian support for Israel, an end to Israel's occupation and apartheid policies and support for the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions campaign against Israel.

Please find below some photos from the demonstration.  

A second demonstration against Israel's attacks on Gaza is being planned for Melbourne to be held on Friday, 23 November at 6pm at the State Library of Victoria.

in solidarity,
