Solidarity for Gaza
DELEGATION TO EGYPT AND GAZA
MARCH 1- 15, 2009
Where is the outrage over the massacre of confined, defenseless Palestinians in the Gaza Strip? The US Congress's acceptance of Israel's invasion is criminal and immoral. Now relief aid to Gaza is being blocked by these international lawbreakers.
We Seek Your Help
Please Support Our Delegation, Be Part of the Relief Efforts
Peaceful Palestinians have been living in Gaza, under an Israeli military blockade since June 2007. Israel controls the land, air and sea surrounding Gaza. Palestinians seek to be free from Israel's authoritarian and murderous rule in Gaza and in the West Bank.
One and a half million peole in the Gaza Strip are now suffering the worst injustice of all. After the world witnessed the brutal massacre of the people, including over 400 children, humanitarian relief is now being blocked by the regional dictators Israel and the US. We urge the Egyptian government to open their borders to relief workers and journalists going to Gaza.
A team of physicians, surgeons, mental health professionals, social workers and journalists are set to go to Gaza, Palestine the first of March, 2009. The delegation is being coordinated by co-founders of the Free Gaza Coalition, a Palestinian-American journalist and a community activist in greater Cleveland, Ohio. "We have had a great national response from our call sent through the Arab-American Medical Association and other contacts."
The Gaza Delegation will:
- Fulfill medical requests
- Deliver water purifiers to hospitals and schools
- Assess medical and mental health needs in Gaza
- Assess infrastructural damage and rebuilding efforts for Gaza
- Facilitate medical and mental health work teams
- Facilitate school supplies shipments and deliveries
- Help Coordinate home rebuilding teams
- Cast Love, not lead
