'Die In' for Gaza/Palestine
Meet: Tuesday 13 January - 12.00 midday
Rabin memorial - Harris Street, Wellington
(Organised by Christians for Justice in Palestine)
Christians for Justice in Palestine (CFJP)
CFJP is a group of Christians shocked into action by the present massive casualties in Gaza. We have gathered to demand a more active role from the NZ government in ensuring a just and lasting peace in Palestine.
As an initial action, we will be meeting at the Rabin memorial in Harris Street for a moment of silence to remember the 60 years of dispossession and suffering of Palestinians since 1948. The group will then move to Civic Square where a mass 'die-in' will take place. Participants will be invited to 'die' as a symbolic representation of the lives being lost at present.
At the end of the protest, a petition will be presented to the government via the nearby National Party headquarters.
The protest will be non-violent. All who wish to participate - believers or non-believers are invited. Please bring/ wear "bloodstained" clothes and/or bandages to be presented with the petition. Religious ministers are invited to wear their clerical garb.
