Justice for Palestine was formed in November 2008 by a group of people in Melbourne, Australia who feel compelled to act against the brutality suffered by the people of Palestine at the hands of the Israeli government. We aim to raise awareness about the plight of the Palestinian people and we call for the following:
- Recognition of the existence of Palestine as a sovereign nation and the existence of a Palestinian people and culture prior to the formation of Israel
- An end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine
- Right of return for Palestinian refugees to their homelands
- An end to the collective punishment of Palestinian people through the use of violence and denial of movement and access to medicines, food and water by the Israeli government
- Justice for Palestine.
Justice for Palestine denounces violence and aims to achieve the above using peaceful means. Such as vigils, letter writing and activities where Palestinian culture is celebrated. We are not affiliated with any political party or religious ideology and welcome all like-minded people to join with us in working towards peace and freedom for Palestinians.
