Palestine: Breaking the siege in Gaza
Kim Bullimore 14 July 2007

"We've tried to enter Palestine by land. We've tried to arrive by air. Now we're getting serious. We're taking a ship".


In August 2007, up to 70 human rights activists from 13 countries will attempt to non-violently break the Israeli and international siege of the densely populated Gaza Strip by sailing a ship into Gazan territorial waters with US$25,000 worth of humanitarian aid to donate to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

Israel has prevented the activists — who include teachers, students, musicians, politicians and holocaust survivors — from carrying out humanitarian work in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). The campaign aims to raise international awareness about the prison-like closure of the Gaza Strip and to pressure the international community to review its sanctions policy and end its support for continued Israeli occupation.

"Israel claims that since it pulled its settlers out of Gaza, the strip is a 'foreign country' that is no longer under Israeli occupation. If this is the case then its total control over Gaza's air space, territorial waters and border crossings [including those into Egypt] is a gross violation of international law", Michael said.

"The Israel-Palestine conflict has become the defining struggle between racism and justice in the world today. It is impossible to support justice, human rights and democracy without opposing Israeli apartheid", Michael said.

The Break the Siege campaign needs your support.

Amen to that. One of the ways of stopping the Palestinian Holocaust that has been set in motion by the IOF is to bring the public's attention to the world's largest prison. That prison is the Occupied Gaza Strip.
A prison that is under constant Israeli attack. A prison whose inhabitants are slowly being exterminated thru the Israeli blockade of Gaza's entry points. A blockade that is denying sufficient amount of potable water, food, fuel and medicine to the Strip.

Israel's crimes against humanity, most of which are directed at Gaza, need to STOP.

These brave activists need your moral and financial support to help break the Israeli blockade of Gaza.

They are risking their lives to shine a light on the illegal Israeli siege of Gaza. i've already sent them some money to help with their brave and noble cause.

How about you? Can you help stop the Palestinian Holocaust before it's too late?
