Today I received this alert in regard to the current Zionist lobbying efforts against the World Social Forum (WSF) – Free Palestine (FP), which is going to take place in Porto Alegre, Brazil, from November 28-December 1, 2012. At this point the Zionist lobby in Brazil has succeeded in cancelling the venue (Usina do Gasômetro) that had been booked for the WSF-FP.
As a result I am asking you to please write to the mayor and the provincial governor asking that the WSF-FP booking of the “Usina do Gasômetro” is reinstated and not to succumb to Zionist pressure.
Porto Alegre mayor José Fortunati:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Mr. Gil Almeida, adviser to the mayor)
Rio Grande do Sul’s Governor, Tarso Genro:
For more information, please read the press release by WSF organizer and journalist, Baby Siqueira Abrão, which I have included below.
Many thanks in advance,
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Zionists are in contact with the mayor of Porto Alegre (PoA) and the governor of Rio Grande do Sul (PoA is the capital of Rio Grande do Sul state) against the World Social Forum Free Palestine. In part they succeed, because now the WSF have lost the Usina do Gasômetro, the place where it would be held.
Brazilian Organizing Committee is trying to maintain Gasômetro, but, as we don’t know what will happen, we are trying to ensure other places in Porto Alegre for the conferences, activities, lectures and a local for the media work (the traditional one and the independent one, as well as the News Agency Free Palestine, which I coordinate and whose journalists will keep informed the public and the media about what is going on at the WSFFP in real time).
The Zionists from Federação Israelita do Rio Grande do Sul (Israeli Federation) said to the governor, Tarso Genro, that they fear attacks from Palestinian “radicals” against their properties. It make some of us to think that they can promote a false flag in PoA and blame the Palestinians for it.
Tarso Genro suggested a meeting among Palestinian and Israelis ambassadors, for demonstrations of good will and peace, but the Palestinian ambassador in Brazil, Ibrahim Alzeben, refused the proposal. Palestine is a occupied country which people have been suffering ethnic cleaning since 19th century. Palestinians want and deserve freedom, justice and sovereignty, not normalization.
Recently, the Ethic Tribunal which would judge the Zionists acts against Palestinians and which would take place in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina — an initiative from Argentinean pro Palestine organizations — was forbidden due to the pressure of Zionist lobby in Argentina.
It’s important that we join efforts for denounce those Zionist’s acts all over the world and that all of us lodge protests against those acts, through which Zionists want to silence Latin American public and prevent them to know the true about what Zionism movement is doing in Palestine, from before Nakba until now.
We count on you for publishing this alert and our protest against that action which is an attack against freedom of meeting and expression, and against the rescue of the historical true.
