By Dr. David Halpin

Dear Mel,

I wish you to bring these facts in front of Mr Hunt on behalf of Susan and myself, the Palestinian people who have no voice, and to reverse the ‘vortex of ever increasing violence in our world’.  Canterbury, NZ where I worked, and homicide with knives etc are symbolic.
