Yogyakarta -- Demonstrators from the People's Challenge Alliance (ARM) held a protest action at the University of Gajah Mada (UGM) traffic circle in the Central Java city of Yogyakarta on Thursday June 3 calling for the world's people to unite against imperialism for the national liberation of Palestine.
Action coordinator Yuni stated that the Israeli blockade is an effort to weaken the Palestinian people's struggle. To this day however, international institutions such as the United Nations and countries such as Indonesia have failed to take a firm stand to accelerate the peace process in Palestine.
"It needs to be understood that the conflict that is taking place between Israel and Palestine is not a religious or racial conflict. Rather it is a conflict of interests over the control of strategic economic assets by international imperialists through Israel as its puppet", said Yuni.
