Police arrested 23 people following a pro-Palestine protest at Sydney’s Port Botany. The protesters gathered to oppose the arrival of an Israeli-owned container ship and call for a ceasefire in Gaza. Video footage shows scuffles between police and protesters, with claims of “heavy-handed” tactics. The Palestine Justice Movement Sydney organized the gathering, targeting ships operated by Israel’s largest container shipping carrier, ZIM. ZIM CEO Eli Glickman previously stated the company’s priority was to transfer cargo to Israel. Calls for Australian politicians to take a tougher stance on Israel’s bombardment have increased as the death toll and situation worsen in Palestine.
