South Africa: Ten thousand voices raised against the weapons of Israeli Apartheid
Ten thousand people braved the rain on June 9th to march for Palestine in Cape Town under the banner 'Free Palestine! End Israeli Occupation!'
The crowd was addressed by long standing Palestine and former anti-apartheid activists as well as Ministers Pallo Jordan and Ronnie Kasrils of the ANC, Moulana Hendricks, President of the Muslim Judicial Council, Tony Ehrenreich of Cosatu, Jeremy Cronin of the SACP, Rev Oswald of the Anglican Church and Mercia Andrews of the New Women's Movement. In all a huge coalition of different forces took part in the demonstration from social movements, to faith groups and from trade unions to political parties including ministers. The speakers demanded an end to the occupation and called for boycotts and sanctions against Apartheid Israel. This was followed by a symbolic ring of 350 cars around the US Consulate.
