November 22, 2023

Twelve year old Jayda Shadid made a passionate call on Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to push for a ceasefire at the November 19 rally for Gaza in Gadi/Sydney.

“I'm here today because the adults in power have failed,” she said.

“Children like me should be catching waves at the beach, playing cricket in the back yard, having a childhood, not being blown to pieces every ten minutes.”

She called on the government to stop supporting the Israeli regime that is “killing innocent children” and she called for boycotts against companies linked to funding weapons to Israel.
