Focus on the Global South Statement on Palestine

Bangkok, 28 July 2014 -- The current phase of the sustained Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people has already resulted in over 800 deaths and shows no signs of abating.


We strongly condemn the manner in which Israel has used the most sophisticated weaponry to attempt to annihilate the Palestinian people citing the supposed threat the heavily armed Israeli state faces from the rockets of Hamas. The massacre of the Palestinians in Gaza, which is being treated as a spectator sport by some Israelis deserves international condemnation.
