As part of Marxism 2010, the Workers Party and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Solidarity Campaign, took to the streets as part of a protest in Wellington against the Israeli IDF "Flotilla Raid".
500 Protesters marched through Wellington, holding up traffic, to the Israeli Embassy chanting "from Wellington to Gaza we support the Intifada!", "Down Down Israel" and "2 4 6 8 Israel is a racist state".
Once at the embassy there where a number of speakers. Mike Walker, PFLP Campaign Co-ordinator, spoke about the need to look beyond each Israeli massacre to the root causes of the conflict, which he defined as the Zionist colonial project and its Western Imperialist backers.
The following day as part of Marxism 2010 the PFLP Solidarity Campaign presented a session on aspects of Resistance. Paul Hopkinson, Workers Party member and PFLP Campaign co-coordinator, spoke about the Palestinian Intifada's, there differences and consequences. Mike Walker then spoke about the detention of Ahmad Sa'adat, the General Secretary of the PFLP, and the designation of the Popular Front as a terrorist organisation.
