BN Youth to hold protest at KLCC

(The Star) PUTRAJAYA: Umno Youth will hold a protest at the KLCC Mosque today against Israel's military action in Lebanon and Palestine.

The protest will be led by Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin and will include youth leaders from the other Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties.

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said protests would continue as long as Israeli action in Lebanon and Palestine persisted.

“We want the Lebanese and Palestinians to know we are with them,” he said after chairing the ministry's post-Cabinet meeting yesterday.

Last Friday, more than 2,000 Umno Youth members marched to the American, French and Chinese embassies and the British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur to protest against the Israeli action.

Hishammuddin said BN Youth leaders would also be travelling to various countries in the region to create awareness of Israel's military action in Lebanon and Palestine.
