French Protest against Israeli ‘Flour Massacre’ of starving civilians

Throughout France, supporters of Palestine have marched to denounce Israel’s constant atrocities and war crimes during the invasion of Gaza.

The world has been stunned by what’s been dubbed the “Flour Massacre”; the death of over 100 Palestinians and the wounding of nearly 800 others when Israeli troops opened fire on hungry civilians waiting for food.

We are here to ask for sanctions and to expose the hypocrisy of those who say that they were shocked by the killing of people starving, that were getting humanitarian aid, but at the same times [sic], don’t do anything to stop the genocide.

Some 600,000 people in Gaza or 25% of the population are currently at risk of famine.

The French Foreign Ministry said the shootings were unjustifiable and backed a call for an independent investigation by the United Nations.

French President Emmanuel Macron demanded truth, justice, and respect for international law and called for an immediate ceasefire.

In the western world which is and remains an accomplice with the Israeli genocide; but a slight change in the tone of all those Western leaders, including Emmanuel Macron.

I remember that a few months ago Macron was proposing a military coalition to fight the Palestinian resistance in Gaza.

Four years ago Macron forced through a bill which equated anti-Zionism with anti-semitism, despite the obvious differences between the two.

Macron is two faced. It is only since the International Criminal Court announced that they would investigate Israel that Macron began to say just a few words which were not in total support of Israel.

He continues to give arms to Israel and is as complicit as the leaders in Tel Aviv.

Many marchers carried posters of the deceased United States soldier, Aaron Bushnell, who set himself on fire at the Israeli embassy in Washington, after declaring that he will no longer be complicit in genocide.

Upon the start of Israel’s invasion of Gaza, France imposed a nationwide ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations around the country.

Activists were subjected to mass arrests, a record number of fines, and forced to endure the infamous brutality of the French police.
