MANDELA DAY: MOURNING THE 4 LITTLE BOYS KILLED BY ISRAEL WHILE PLAYING SOCCER ON A BEACH
Today as we mark "Mandela Day" we are reminded of Tata Madiba's love for children and his reminder that: "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."
Last year on the 16th of July, 2 days before the world marked "Mandela Day", Israel killed 4 little Palestinian boys while they were playing soccer on a beach in Gaza. The boys were between 9 and 11 years old. The Israeli killing of the 4 children was unfortunately not an isolated incident. Last year, in less than 2 months, Israel killed more than 550 Palestinian kids - on average, Israel killed a Palestinian child every 2 hours for 6 weeks. Click here for a New York Times report on last year's incident.
Lets stop the next Israeli bomb. Lets prevent the killing of another Palestinian kid. Lets actively respond to the call by Palestinians for a program of non-violent boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel till it ends its human rights abuses against the indigenous Palestinian people. Donate, join us on social media, support BDS SA's academic boycott initiatives, cultural boycott campaigns, calls on government for sanctions, sports boycott ... and at a consumer level, at the very least, be counted as a #BoycottWoolworths supporter!
