Princes Park becomes a sea of red in solidarity with Israel

Thousands of community members braved the cold yesterday morning to show their solidarity with Israel.  Click here for photos of the event.

Princes Park in South Caulfield was sea of red as community members both young and old donned red to show their support with Israel. Community leaders, politicians and youth led the gathering.

The “Code Red – Stop the Rockets” rally highlighted the plight of millions of Israelis who live in constant fear of rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

Zionist Council of Victoria President Sam Tatarka said: “Israel has an obligation to defend its citizens and is acting as would any other nation on Earth.  Millions of Israelis live in constant fear of attacks with as little as 15 seconds to find shelter. Israel builds shelters from missiles for its people while Hamas uses its people to shelter its missiles" he said.  He led the crowd with the chant “Stop the rockets, Peace Now!!”

Community quenches its thirst for knowledge

“What would Australia do if rockets were being fired from Frankston into Melbourne?” This was one of the questions posed to the audience by Zionist Council President, Sam Tatarka when answering a question relating to Israel’s perceived excessive force at an information evening held last night.

More than 200 community members braved the weather to hear the latest updates on the current situation in Israel. The Zionist Council of Victoria and the Zionist Federation of Australia information session was held at Beth Weizmann Community Centre.

There was live crossing via Skype to Michelle Rojas-Tal, Diaspora Education Director of StandWithUs. Michelle gave personal insight into the conflict in Israel. She spoke of the difficulties for families as it now in the middle of the school’s summer holidays and the struggle of what to do with their teenagers while they are working.

She also spoke of the huge psychological impact the constant sirens are having on children and their heightened anxiety and fears. The loss of tourism and the impact on businesses as well as the issues of using volunteers to help provide the thousands of additional reservists, called up because of the current situation with basic necessities such as toiletries and food.
