Joint Statement of RCIT and IWU-FI
Once again, the Israeli government has intensified its campaign of terror against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip. In the past 48 hours, the Israeli air force and navy have killed 25 Palestinians, including Falastine Abu Arar, a 37-year-old pregnant mother, and her 14-month-old niece, Siba. Nearly 70 Palestinians were injured in the attacks. In addition, the Israeli army destroyed the building that had housed the Gaza office of the Turkish state news agency Anadolu. Three Israelis died as a result of the launching of Palestinian rockets in retaliation.
This new criminal and genocidal action by Israel is part of the historical aggression of imperialism and the Zionist forces against the entire Palestinian people. They have carried forward, since 1948, an usurpation of Palestinian lands.
Throughout the world the repudiation of this new criminal action of Zionism, endorsed by imperialism and Donald Trump, is growing.
From the RCTI and the IWU-FI we join the international repudiation and call for unitary actions to fight against these crimes of the Zionist and racist state of Israel. We call the workers and popular organizations around the world to support the Palestinian people.
For international mass mobilizations and a popular boycott campaign against Israel!
Stop the massacre in Gaza!!
Down with the criminal repression of the Palestinian people!
Freedom to all Palestinian prisoners! Down with the Israel's Apartheid state!
Drive imperialism out of Palestine and the whole Middle East!
For unconditional support for the resistance of the Palestinian people!
