Over 50 people gathered outside Federal MP Sharon Claydon’s office in Newcastle on Thursday demanding the Government take grater action against Israel.

Protesters held props resembling dead bodies wrapped in white shrouds, to reflect the 40,000 Palestinian people killed by Israel in their latest attack on Gaza.

In the southern city of Rafah it’s reported 1.4 million Palestinians of which 600,000 are children are trapped by the borders, the sea and Israel’s military.

Community Spokesperson Dr Liam Phelan says “the Federal Government should cut all diplomatic and economic ties with Israel”.
