Foro Itinerante de Participación Popular (The Traveling Popular Participation Forum – FIPP), Hindu Anderi, January 6, 2009
The Traveling Forum communiqué, subscribed by diverse organizations and popular movements, raises among other topics the expulsion of the Israeli Ambassador from Venezuela, the rupture of economic relations with that country and the cancelation of petroleum shipments to the Zionist government.

The text of the communiqué:

GENOCIDE IN GAZA…
STOP THE ZIONIST HOLOCAUST AGAINST THE ARAB PEOPLE

"Nowadays, near a million and a half civilians in Palestine are prisoners of the Israeli army and are being deprived of food, fuel and electricity in the Gaza Strip, turned into a gigantic concentration camp only comparable to AUSCHWITZ, the extermination camp in Nazi Germany.

"Behind the Zionist crime hide the political interests of the candidates of the parties that will dispute the government of Israel in the next elections. Whoever kills more people or supports the genocide attack against the Palestinian civilians has a greater option of winning or of staying in power, whatever the case. …

It is inconceivable that those who call themselves descendants of the victims of Nazism in Europe commit today the same atrocities, becoming the executioners and involving themselves in the extermination of the original people of Palestine. Peace for the Palestinian people cannot be the peace of the tomb.
