For the benefit of those that missed the first public meeting about the plight of the Palestinians and how it relates to the Australian government a few weeks ago, the Australian Friends of Palestine Association (AFOPA) will hold a second public meeting at the Burnside Community Centre, Burnside, South Australia, to begin at 5.00pm on Saturday 17 November 2007.
Speakers again will be Mr. Paul Heywood-Smith QC and Dr. David Palmer, senior lecturer in American Studies at Flinders University, South Australia. Mike Khazam from the NOWAR Coalition will also speak. All speakers will be available to answer questions. The aim of the public seminars is to increase public awareness in the community of the history and plight of the Palestinian people and to dispel many of the myths and rumours that have evolved over the years.
The meeting is being held at Burnside specifically because it happens to be in the Sturt seat of Liberal Minister Christopher Pyne MP, who has an appalling record of supporting Israeli policies that are detrimental to the Palestinians.
If you are in South Australia, why not come along. You’d be quite welcome.
