melbourne marches for gaza

Today I went, along with thousands of Melburnians, to a march in the city to support the end of violence in Gaza.

Even though the ceasefire has been called thousands came out to highlight the human tragedy occurring in Gaza.

Greens Senator, Sarah Hanson-Young spoke at the beginning of the march and said "No child should ever be used as a weapon of war, nor should they be subjected to violence and forced to flee their homes in fear." She went on to talk about one young teenage girl who had literally died from fear in Gaza.

We have all seen the horror on our television screens, violence and aggression is never a solution to any problem and I condemn the violence on both sides.

We are very fortunate that we live in a peaceful country.
