Millions of people around the world have taken to the streets to protest Israel’s brutal and criminal 50 day assault on Gaza, while many governments either gave their support to Israel or remained silent. However, in Latin America many governments have joined with their people in protest and taken a firm stand in solidarity with Palestine and Gaza. In 1973 Cuba cut ties with Israel and has never reestablished relations. Venezuela also cut ties with Israel during Israel’s siege on Gaza in 2009. Both countries have issued strong condemnations of Israel’s attacks on Gaza, and provided aid to Palestinians. Bolivia recently limited relations with Israel, and has called Israel a terrorist state. Since the recent attacks on Gaza, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador and Peru have all recalled their ambassadors from Tel Aviv. Argentina, Mexico, Nicaragua and Uruguay also joined in condemning the recent Zionist Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Join this forum to discuss the leading role that governments in Latin America have taken in solidarity with Palestine.
