International Third Camp protests
January 6th, 2009
With the start of the brutal ground phase of the conflict in Gaza Strip, Gazans are now experiencing a horrible scene. The massacre is not only on the crime scene. Those who die in hospitals because of the lack of medicine, or otherwise lack of water, food and other basic necessities of life are the victims too.
This WAR must stop!
Hamas and the Israeli government are both trying to profit from the casualties and the actions of the other party. Neither has the progressive humanity's interest, that is, a lasting peace and a truly just solution at heart.
Therefore, neither of them is acceptable to us, peaceandequalityloving people. Neither of these forces is going to recognize the two equal states of Palestine and Israel. Both of these forces want nothing but to wipe the other from the map! This insanity must stop.
In addition to millions of us around the world, 10,000 Israelis opposed the war on January 3, opposed the Israeli government on Tel Aviv streets. As a matter of fact, thousands upon thousands of Palestinians would do the same IF they had as much freedom to express themselves against the Islamic terrorist as well as the rotten, corrupt nationalist forces. So, let us support that third, that truly people's, trend. It is a Third Camp that finds itself even in the streets of Tel Aviv, but is censored by the Israeli as well as the Western media.
This note is to anyone who is interested in organizing an international Third Camp protest to oppose both the state terrorism of Israel, supported by its Western allies, and the Islamist terrorism. It demands:
• Immediate ceasefire! No attacks/occupation of Gaza! No rockets into Israel!
• Immediate withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza!
•Immediate removal of antihuman blockade of Gaza by Israel!
• No to Israeli state terrorism! No to Hamas Islamist terrorism!
• Peace through the formation and recognition of a viable, equal state of Palestine!
The Third Camp already exists. Just read its Charter on www.thirdcamp.com, and join!
If you too are interested in participating and/or organizing an international day of protest from the stand point of the Third Camp please contact us.
