Greens on Gaza conflict

The Greens were very quiet on Gaza, compared to their previous stances.  Neither the Australian or New Zealand Greens took public stances at the Anti-Israel rallies. 

In Australia, Christine Milne of the Greens tried to table a motion to "Lift The Blockade on Gaza".

Andrew Bolt rightly pointed out that the blockade is only on weapons, which Hamas seem to have no problems getting anyway.

Given the absolute pasting the Greens had in NSW elections over solely their poor handling of Palestinian issues, you would think they would just keep quiet.

In New Zealand, that is exactly what they did.  No Blog Posts, although we may see some this week with the security council vote.

The closest we had to a comment was a couple of small Press Releases from Kennedy Graham.
