12,000 rally in Melbourne against Israel

This has been our third major rally, and each protest has drawn greater crowds.

Yesterday, organisers put the numbers at 12,000, with a range of speakers covering the entire spectrum of the community.

Muslims, Christians, Jews, Atheists, Socialists all marched in the centre of Melbourne to condemn Israel's ruthless war against a defenceless population.

We had speakers from Christian churches, Jewish groups, Islamic groups, politicians, unionists, and a newspaper cartoonist among others.

The Palestinian cause has indeed popular support across the entire community in Australia.
