I hope that my heart can take it...
If you would like to help open the eyes of the world to what is going on in Gaza, please organize a solidarity action in your community to take place between December 27th and December 31st. For more information, click here (and be sure to check out the side navigation on the page for more details).
From the organizers:
The timing here is crucial. On December 27, 2008, Israel launched an attack on the Gaza Strip called Operation Cast Lead in which over 1400 Palestinians were killed, including as many as 300 children. In remembrance of these innocent civilians and to mark the fact that it has been one year since the Israeli assault began, some 1,000 people from around the world will join with 50,000 Palestinians in a massive nonviolent Gaza Freedom March on New Year's Eve, December 31, in Gaza. The International Coalition to End the Illegal Siege of Gaza is calling on us to coordinate local solidarity actions to raise awareness and media attention for the big March and the need to end the illegal blockade.
I will bring back photos of what I see. I will write and talk about what I see. But I need you to help me and the other marchers to let the world know that the blockade on Gaza must be lifted.
