SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL COALITION STATEMENT ON THE QANA MASSACRE

The SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL COALITION hereby condemns in the strongest possible terms the latest massacre of civilians, mostly children, at Qana.

The simple question arises: HOW MANY CIVILIANS IN
LEBANON AND GAZA HAVE TO BE BUTCHERED BEFORE THE UN IMPLEMENTS SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL? AND IN THE CASE OF SA: HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THE SA GOVT IMPLEMENTS SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL? The UN , by their inaction are complicit in the slaughter of the civilians. statements of condemnation are not enough, especially in the light of Israel's decision to continue to slaughter more of the Lebanese andPalestinians.

The events reinforce our resolve to intensify the
campaign to isolate Israel. We will redouble our
efforts to have the "Mother of all marches" to
parliament on Sat the 5 th August 2006. At the same time we are calling on workers in Cosatu, Nactu, Fedusa and other unions to implement workers sanctions against Israel. We salute the Liverpool dockers for their decision not to allow any Israeli goods to enter via their ports. The Campaign was strengthened today by the decision of Fedusa to join the Coalition. Besides focusing on the 5 th August march the next major step will involve the major federations setting a date for a national day of action. We call on them to convene urgently to do just that. The eyes of the workers of the world are on you.

The Palestinians had a resolution before 1994 that
Palestine can only be free if South Africa is free. It is overdue that we in South Africa now throw all our efforts into freeing Palestine. We call for no links with Israel, only links with a free Palestine.
