Palestinian author and journalist Ali Abunimah kicked off his New Zealand speaking tour addressing a packed auditorium at the Auckland Town Hall concert chamber on Sunday night.

Abunimah, editor of The Electronic Intifada, made an inspiring call for action to build the international movement for Palestine – focusing on effective boycott and divestment campaigns.

“The tide has turned,” Ali said, reported Kia Ora Gaza as support for the Palestinian human rights struggle, and condemnation of apartheid Israel grew around the world.

He spoke in Wellington last night and his Christchurch and Dunedin programme is here. Photo gallery by PMC’s Del Abcede who was at the Palestine conference.
