Human rights activists protested the visit to Melbourne of Israeli war criminal, Benny Gantz on March 7.

'We will always live by our sword', declared Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, upon his retirement from the role of Chief of General Staff of the Israel Occupation Forces, 12 months ago.

Gantz led two major Israeli military offensives against the people of Gaza. Operation 'Protective Edge' killed 2,200 Palestinians, including 500 children, and left tens of thousands of Gaza residents homeless. Gantz also headed Operation 'Brother's Keeper' in the West Bank, which arrested and detained 800 Palestinians, without charge or trial, and killed another nine.

Protests will be held in every city Gantz visits.
