Human rights activists protested the visit to Melbourne on March 7 of Israeli war criminal Benny Gantz.
“We will always live by our sword,” declared Lieutenant General Gantz on his retirement as Chief of General Staff of the Israel Occupation Forces, 12 months ago.
Gantz led two major Israeli military offensives against Palestinians. Operation Protective Edge killed 2200 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.
