Urgent Call for an Immediate Ceasefire in Gaza
Statement by the Chinese Australians for Peace Association
29 October 2023
As advocates for peace, we are profoundly saddened by the loss of civilian lives, including children, in both Israel and Gaza since 7th October 2023, and the worsening humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
Our hearts ache for all those caught in this humanitarian crisis, and we join the worldwide plea for all parties to adhere to the relevant international laws. It is vital not only to protect civilian lives but also to ensure the unimpeded delivery of essential goods such as food, fuel, clean water, electricity, and humanitarian aid to those in dire need.
While we recognize the complex history of the region, we condemn all acts of violence against civilians and urgently call for an immediate ceasefire. We sincerely hope to see a lasting resolution achieved through negotiations involving all parties, thereby fostering enduring peace and stability in the region.
