Over 200 people, some wearing the keffiyeh and carrying placards calling for a stop to the massacre in Gaza, this afternoon took part in a peace march from Freedom Square along Republic Street in Valletta.
The march, organised by the non-governmental organisations Graffitti, the Peace Lab and Kopin, also included the participation of political parties, the General Workers’ Union, Zminijietna, the third world group and Koperattiva Kummerc Gust.
A spokesman for Graffitti called for the violence in Gaza to stop and asked the Maltese government to take concrete action and put pressure on the Israeli government to immediately stop the attacks and start participating in a process that would lead to peace and justice.
He said all acts of violence were to be condemned but the actions being taken by the Hamas were not on the same level with those by Israel.
