" It is about our never ending support for the people of Palestine and by extension, oppressed people of the world. Humanity has not let you down, people in the tip of Africa and people around the world are not going to let you down." 

On Friday, The Jewish Board of Deputies  joined the South African Union of Jewish Students  in a protest outside the Sandton Convention Centre. 

It took place where International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor was scheduled to give the keynote address  at the Global Anti-Apartheid Conference  on Palestine.
