Pro-Palestine rally takes to Parliament House as Greens’ motion fails
7/02/2024
(See translation in Arabic section)
Sydney - Middle East Times Int’l: Busloads of pro-Palestinian supporters have descended on Parliament House, calling on the federal government to condemn Israel and restore funding to the United Nations agency responsible for aid in Gaza.
The protesters, who came from around the country, took part in a smoking ceremony outside the Aboriginal Tent Embassy with Victorian senator Lidia Thorpe, before making their way back up to Parliament House while chanting rally cries.
Choruses of “shame, Albo, shame; shame, Penny, shame”, rang out - referring to Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Foreign Minister Penny Wong, and “Albanese you can’t hide; we charge you with genocide”.
One sign read “a vote for Albanese is a vote for Biden and his cronies”, while participants were invited to paint their hands red and place a handprint on a sign that read: “blood on your hands Albo”.
Among the crowd, someone was dressed as the popular children's character Bluey, with Palestinian flags draped from his ears.
