Swansea Rally in Opposition to Massacre in Gaza
19th January 2009Around 300 protesters attended a city centre rally on Saturday showing the strong oppsition in Swansea to the slaughter in Gaza.
MP's and AM's all expressed their horror at the killings of innocent people and demanded an immediate ceasefire but it was left to Rob Williams speaking from the Trades Council to put forward the class demands of mass struggle and working class unity as the only lasting solution. Rob's speech got loud applause from many Palestinians and the Socialist party stall was also very busy with over 50 papers being sold and one person joining up. At the end of the rally the vociferous young Palestinian protesters led a spontaneous march around the city centre with their banners and placards demanding Justice for Palestine and Stop the Slaughter.
