Australia UN abstention vote on Israel-Gaza resolution

Zionist Federation of Australia President < 1 mins read

Zionist Federation of Australia President, Jeremy Leibler, said “Australia made the right decision not to support a UN General Assembly resolution on Gaza that failed to condemn the barbaric terrorist attack perpetrated by Hamas on 7 October or call for the release of the 229 hostages held by Hamas.”

“We share the world’s empathy for innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Their suffering is a direct result of Hamas’s actions and is exacerbated by Hamas’s continued use of Palestinians as human shields and their refusal to share fuel, food and water with their own people.”

“The plight of innocent Palestinians will not improve if the world refuses to call out the source of their suffering. Hamas must not be allowed to continue to attack Israel and oppress its own people. Accordingly, we would have preferred if Australia followed the lead of the United States and voted No rather than abstain on the final resolution.”

EMILY's List Australia

Eden Foster’s election to seat of Mulgrave achieves equal gender representation for first time in Victorian Parliament.

The election of Labor’s Eden Foster to the Victorian seat of Mulgrave means that now, for the first time, women make up half the members of the State’s Upper and Lower Houses. EMILY’s List CEO Pamela Anderson said that equal gender representation in the Victorian Parliament - 64 women and 64 men - was testament to the hard work of the collective feminist movement’s support of progressive Labor women. “Since our beginnings in 1997, EMILY’s List knows that that to pursue outcomes for all women, we must encourage, support and mentor a diversity of women to be elected to Parliament,”…
