25th April every year marks Italy’s liberation from Nazi-facism. On this 79th commemoration of Italian Liberation Day, we wish to support the resistance of the Palestinian People against the Israeli aggression and over 70 years of illegal occupation of their lands. We also acknowledge the ongoing resistance to colonisation by the First Nations Peoples in Australia
