Australasian Union of Jewish Students Launch Code Red – Stop the Rockets

Sydney, Australia | 2012

Australasian Union of Jewish Students mobilize in support of residents of Israel.

The Australasian Union of Jewish Students, an organization mentored by Hillel Australia professionals, started an online campaign called “Code Red – Stop the Rockets.” They mobilized in support of residents in Israel, who have just seconds to take shelter when they hear a “code red,” alerting that a rocket is incoming. They asked students around the world to don red and send in photos on Facebook supporting the message of stopping the rockets. The campaign grew rapidly, with close to 1,800 supporters from Akron to Austria, and has been featured on Australian TV, in Israeli newspapers, online and at rallies around the world.
