Support for Gaza

First published in Letters

A QUIET and powerful vigil was held by the peace-loving people of Newport and Gwent by the Chartist statue. The vigil called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Passersby expressed their anger at the senseless, growing loss of lives in the continuing Israeli military action against the trapped civilian population. A children’s’ hospital built by money collected in Wales has been damaged by the bombing, medicines have run out.

We are determined to stand by the people of Gaza, until they win their freedom.

Ray Davies CND Cymru Caerphilly

"We are determined to stand by the people of Gaza, until they win their freedom."

Great, so long as this also includes the freedom for women and LGBTQ people to not be imprisoned under a repressive Hamas regime which treats women as second-class citizens and in which being gay is punishable by death. ....Or are you just wishing for Palestinians to enjoy the heterosexist, gendernormative, cismale-only type of 'freedom experience package' currently available?
