The International Workers’ Unity-Fourth International (IWU_FI) released the following statement on the recent massacre by the Israeli army. We express our solidarity with the victims and their families as well as the Palestinian people who continue to confront the racist, reactionary Apartheid state of Israel on a daily basis.-SC
The Zionist army criminally suppressed what is known as The Great Return March, a pacific demonstration of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip. The world repudiates the massacre of over 60 Palestinians. Among them children, and over 2,000 injured. The Israeli army shot and machine-gun fired thousands of unarmed Palestinians.
During the six weeks up to the Nakba (catastrophe), the day of Israeli occupation in 1948, this march took place. A pacific march to repudiate the provocative installation of the yank embassy in Jerusalem and it demands the right to return of all those refugees that wish to go back to their homes.
On Tuesday 15th, in every city in the West Bank, in the east of occupied Palestine, and the Gaza Strip, a general strike is being conducted to condemn the genocide of Israel, supported by Trump and the US. Everywhere in the world, the condemnation to this new criminal act of Zionism grows. Even the EU pronounced against this massacre, though they did not do anything to stop it.
We in the IWU-FI join the international condemnation and call for unified actions of repudiation to these crimes by the racist and Zionist State of Israel. The world governments must break diplomatic relationships with Israel.
Stop the massacre in Gaza! Stop the criminal suppression to the Palestinian people! Freedom to all Palestinian prisoners! Down with the apartheid State of Israel! Only one secular democratic and non-racist state of Palestine will bring peace to the region. Out imperialism of Palestine and all Middle East!
Unconditional support to the Palestinian people resistance!
