On Saturday 3 February hundreds of Kiwis joined in a national ‘Day of Action’ for Free Palestine in five NZ cities – focussed on the demand for the immediate release of Ahed Tamimi and all other Palestinian child detainees and political prisoners held in Israeli jails.

Over 100 braved the atrocious weather to attend the Auckland event to hear moving speeches by Green MP Marama Davidson (who represented NZ on the Women’s Boat to Gaza), Sister Barbara Cameron who had stayed with the Tamimi family in West Bank, Mike Treen from Unite Union, Roger Fowler from PSN and Kia Ora Gaza, and Justine Sachs co-founder of Dayenu – Jews Against Occupation. Justine, along with Nadia Abu-Shanab, has been reportedly threatened with legal action from Israel for penning a letter to singing star, Lorde. Nadia spoke at the Wellington rally.
