Trade unions in Gaza organize vigil in solidarity with Egyptian people

GAZA, NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Palestinian trade unions on Monday organized a vigil in solidarity with the Egyptian people, in front of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Gaza.

Dozens of trade unionists participated in the vigil and raised banners demanding halting the killing and arrests of the Egyptian demonstrators, opening the Rafah crossing and lifting the blockade on the Gaza Strip.

A statement by the Palestinian trade unions said: "We express our support to the demands of the Egyptian people who are demanding their legitimate rights to freedom and dignity of life, and we condemn all forms of violence, terrorism and gagging which the demonstrators in Egypt are exposed to."

It also rejected the false accusations and the unjustified propaganda that incite against the people of Gaza in some Egyptian official media, and which resulted in tightening the siege on the people of Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Jerusalem Post newspaper revealed that the Israeli ambassadors to Washington, London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels and other capitals will be lobbying foreign ministers to support the coup in Egypt, "at the same time, leaders will press the case with diplomats from abroad that the military is the only hope to prevent further chaos in Cairo." more
