Lula calls for Celac motion against end of genocide

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva called for a motion from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac) for the “immediate end of the genocide in Gaza” this Friday (1). “The humanitarian tragedy in Gaza demands from all of us the ability to say enough is enough to the collective punishment that the Israeli government imposes on the Palestinian people. People are dying in line for food. The indifference of the international community is shocking,” he said Lula at the 8th Celac Summit.

The Brazilian president also appealed to the five members of the UN Security Council to “put an end to this killing”, and classified the Israeli attacks against the Palestinian population in Gaza as “carnage”.

“I want to ask the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to put aside their differences and put an end to this slaughter. There are already more than 30 thousand dead, 80% women and 8 thousand children. In addition to the number of children and a missing woman. The lives of the Hamas hostages are also at stake and they must be freed. I want to end by telling you that our dignity and humanity are at stake. Therefore, we must stop the carnage in the name of survival of humanity, we need a lot of humanism.”
