CTU Calls for Stronger Action over Gaza

CTU media release

1 June 2010

The CTU has called for stronger action over the Israeli attack on the  humanitarian flotilla attempting to breach the blockade of Gaza.

Peter Conway, CTU Secretary, said: “It is not enough for our Government to simply call the new Israeli ambassador Shemi Tzur in for a chat. The new Israeli embassy in Wellington should be closed and the special  arrangement for young Israelis to travel to New Zealand should be revoked.”

“The Government should also call for an end to the blockade.”
