Marches set off in Sydney against Israeli PM visit to Australia

Feb. 23, 2017 10:22 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2017 7:56 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Crowded march set off in Sydney, Australia to protest Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Australia amid tightened security procedures, Palestinian People’s Party member Shamikh Badra said.

Badra said that the march was organized by Palestinians Action Group organization, and was attended by hundreds of Palestinians, Arabs, and foreign supporters of Palestinian cause.

Protesters held Palestinian flags and signs condemning Netanyahu’s visit to Australia and also demanded that he be detained and prosecuted for war crimes committed against Palestinians.

Protesters also called for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the near-decade-long siege imposed on the Gaza Strip.

Protesters expressed their anger towards Netanyahu’s visit, saying that Netanyahu was “involved in crimes against humanity by killing Palestinian children, imposing sieges, confiscating lands to build illegal settlements and imposing a siege on the Gaza Strip.”
