Under the guidance of the racist ideology of Zionism and lead by the interests of capital, the Israeli regime is systematically carrying through a campaign of terror and mass murder over the Arab population in Palestine.
The invasion of the Gaza Strip is yet another one in the series of Israeli imperialist campaigns, aimed at spreading the influence of the Israeli bourgeoisie, and its American and European allies, throughout the region!
At the root of this war is neither the the conflict of two peoples or two or more local religions.
The war that is being waged is a war against the entire working class of the region, regardless of nationality or religious beliefs!
The Arab people is under the occupation of Israeli military force, being discriminated against on racial and religious basis: these people are being imprisoned, and, inside those prisons, tortured, murdered, while those who are not imprisoned are being exploited as cheap labour.
On the other hand, the Jewish people is being held in a state of obedience by the means of nationalist propaganda and militarist policies of this apartheid police state, thus prevented from countering the economic terror of Israeli bosses, while its living conditions continue to deteriorate due to the economic crisis.
Only a joint resistance of both Arab and Jewish workers, aware of their common interests, can prevent further pointless killing and dying!
The only friend the people of Palestine has today is the working people of the world!
Today we are witnessing an intertnational protest, spurning in almost every country in of the world! In recent days tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Cairo, Los Angeles, London, Moscow, Zagreb...
Belgrade joins the movement of solidarity and resistance against the raging madness of the imperialist military machine.
For an immediate end of the Israeli military invasion against the Gaza Strip!
For an immediate lifting of the blockade, to allow free flow of people and goods through the Gaza Strip
We demand official condemnation of the Israeli invasion against the Gaza Strip by the Serbian state!
