The Socialist Alliance condemns the Israeli massacre in the Gaza strip, which has left at least 500 people dead and 2000 more injured. We call on the Rudd government to condemn this slaughter and suspend all economic, military and cultural ties with Israel until military action ceases, the Israeli armed forces withdraw from Gaza and the Israeli siege of the territory ends.

The massacre comes on the back of two years of blockade imposed by Israel in an attempt to topple the democratically elected Hamas government. The people of Gaza have been denied proper medical treatment, food, clean water, power, and freedom of movement—universally recognised basic human rights.
