The Australian Friends of Palestine Association in Adelaide, South Australia celebrated Palestinian Land Day this year with their 81st consecutive week of protesting in Rundle Mall. We held our first protest on 8 October 2010 and since then anywhere from a dozen to 3 dozen pro-Palestinian activists picket the entrance to the Myer Centre which hosts Israeli cosmetic company, Seacret. The protests last for one hour per week but have been quite successful in educating pedestrians in the Mall. To date we have handed out nearly 31,000 leaflets informing the people of Adelaide about the human rights abuses occurring in Palestine and how they can help make history by boycotting Israeli products. Despite enormous provocation especially from Christian Zionist groups the protests have remained peaceful and positive and the protesters are prepared to keep coming out until we see justice for Palestine.
We put up regular YouTubes of our actions
Also we have incorporated music into our weekly protests with our protesting buskers, Phil Davies and Helen Lawrie.
