Call from Joseph Healy to support the demonstration on saturday

Joseph Healy is co-convenor of Green Left, the ecosocialist current in the Green Party and the Green Party representative on the Stop the War Committee.

'We are calling on all Green Left supporters and friends to support as a priority the demonstrations taking place on Saturday against the war crimes and atrocities being inflicted by the Israelis on the Palestinian civilian population in Gaza. The latest tonight is that a UN school clearly earmarked by the UN has been attacked and a large number of civilians sheltering inside, including many children, massacred. The UN has described it as a violation of international law.

The main demonstration called by Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Solidarity Campaign and CND will be in London. It will march from Hyde Park Corner (gather at 12.30pm) to the Israeli embassy in Kensington. Speakers, including Green MEP for London, Jean Lambert, will address the rally. Leaflets and placards will be distributed by Green Left and Green Party members at the demo'

The US government squanders hundreds of billions of dollars each year on militaristic policies that are not making anyone safer. True security comes from living peacefully, within the Earth's limits, and ensuring that everyone's basic needs are met.
Sign the petition for a Secure Green Future from GreenChange.org. We're telling President Obama to cut military spending at least 70% and invest the money saved in education, health care, preventing home foreclosures and developing green energy. http://tinyurl.com/7hywk3
