CANBERRA — Many public servants on their lunch breaks were diverted on May 9 by a group of pro-Palestinian activists holding a speakout. Organised by the Committee for Peace in the Middle East and Palestinian Rights, the action involved speakers and the distribution of information about the situation in Palestine.
Andrew Hall, chairing the speakout on behalf of the committee, declared: "Only with the complete Israeli withdrawal from the Occupied Territories and the rebuilding of devastated Palestinian infrastructure will the conditions be created for ongoing peace in the Middle East."
