To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives.

Stop the war on Gaza!

This petition of concerned citizens of Australia draws the attention of the House, Senate, Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to Israel’s brutal aggression against the people of Gaza.

We therefore demand the House, the Senate, the Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, and the Deputy Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, immediately:

1.   Condemn, unequivocally, Israel’s brutal siege and invasion of the Gaza Strip in Palestine; and

2.   Suspend all economic, cultural, diplomatic and military ties with the Israeli state until all military aggression against the people of Gaza ceases and Israel lifts its economic blockade of the Gaza Strip.

by Mrs Irwin (from 3,663 citizens)
