Turks stand with Palestinians against genocide

Turkey demonstrates against moving the US embassy. May 14 2018

Turkey & South Africa withdrew their ambassadors from Israel to protest moving the US embassy to Jerusalem but grandstanding gestures do not replace substantive aid like using resources to actively break the embargo of Gaza & end the Israeli occupation. Solidarity with Palestinians has always been strong among Turks & South Africans whose protests are always massive. South Africa & Palestine have apartheid in common. This is Turks demonstrating massively in solidarity with Palestinians. There are other protests being organized in London, Norway, & elsewhere. Make your city a place of Palestinian solidarity by organizing a rally, even if it’s only one person with a placard. Since it is Trump’s provocation that caused the lives of 58 Palestinians yesterday, Americans have a particular responsibility to hit the streets in protest.
