Swansea Protests Attacks on Gaza
14th July 2014
Around 100 protesters, mainly from the Swansea Palestinian community, held a protest and spontaneous march last Saturday in Swansea city centre.
With banners, flags and placards demanding an end to the Israeli slaughter in Gaza the protesters got a warm reception from shoppers as they marched around the city centre.
Our Socialist Party stall which we set up earlier in the city centre saw a lot of young people sign our petition and show an interest in our material. When we moved up to the protest our leaflets were eagerly taken and our stall was busy with many Palestinians agreeing with our demands.
Swansea Socialist Party branch will be discussing the Israeli attacks on Gaza this Thursday and will be welcoming the Swansea Palestinian community and the general public to come and listen to the socialist response to these latest attacks by the Israeli state.
Swansea Socialist Party Meeting
Thursday, July 17th, 7.30 Dyfatty Community Centre, Chapel St, SA1 1NB
Over 200 people gathered by the Nye Bevan statue in Cardiff to protest at the Israeli attacks on Gaza. Overwhelmingly they were young and the most active and militant were young women horrified and angry at the slaughter of civilians in Gaza.
Socialist Party leaflets explaining the socialist background to the latest attack were enthusiastically received and dozens of copies of The Socialist sold. The idea proposed by Socialist Party Wales of protesting at the BBC against at the pro-Israeli coverage of the fighting was keenly taken up.
