With just three days to go until the Greek General Election Athens is buzzing. The stage is literally set for Syriza’s final election rally tonight in Omonia Square in the centre of the city.

The Scottish Socialist Party utterly condemns the current Israeli aggression against the people of Gaza; an aggression which has killed more than 1000 people and inflicted severe damage of the vital infrastructure of this region. We condemn as lies the Israeli argument that they are simply defending themselves against Palestinian attacks.
The naked aggression against the people of Gaza by the Israeli state has been exposed once again in another despicable, murderous act against unarmed people. The unprovoked attack on the peace and humanitarian aid convoy in international waters is akin to the anti racism attacks on activists in the southern states of America in the 1960’s and the shooting of peaceful protesters in Sharpeville, South Africa in 1960.
The Scottish Socialist Party stands shoulder to shoulder with the flotilla activists and the Palestinian people and we call on the UK and Scottish Governments to condemn the heinous crime of the Israeli Government immediately.
We call for a boycott of Israeli goods and international sanctions on the Israeli state.
