Let Gaza live!

The murderous embargo must be lifted
In the Gaza Strip one and a half million people virtually live under siege, behind barbed wire and without a chance to escape this prison camp. The living conditions are unbearable due to a severe shortage of food, medicine and clean water, strictly limited power supply and worsening hygienic conditions. Despite this situation the blockade of the Gaza Strip is tightened and the Israeli Army is launching military actions and bombardments on an almost daily basis. Those who have to suffer are the civilians.

60 years after the massive expulsion of the Palestinians from their home country a murderous embargo makes 1.5 million people in Gaza struggle for survival.

Considerations how to continue after a successful protest in Egypt

Since the imposition of the embargo on Gaza and its radicalisation in January of this year already several international solidarity delegations tried to enter besieged Gaza. The latest attempt took place on March 31 starting from Cairo and trying to reach Gaza with relief materials.

Egyptian govt blocks solidarity delegation to Gaza

Protest against the complicity of the EU in the genocide
Thu, 04/03/2008
On March 31, 2008, an international delegation with some 30 participants from the Basque country, Austria, Scotland, Norway, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, France, Spain, Greece, USA, Turkey, Palestine, Jordan and India was determined to reach Rafah, in order to bring relief to the besieged Palestinian people in Gaza and to extend our solidarity with their courageous resistance.

But the Egyptian security forces halted the delegation at Baladua, 190 km from the border. After staging a protest at the check point we began to walk towards Rafah, since our bus was blocked from moving ahead. Finally, after the police was blocking the road, taking away our passports and threatening us with arrest, we decided to take our protest back into Cairo itself. A rally was staged outside of the delegation of the European Union.

Italian Appeal to end a genocidal embargo
Wed, 12/05/2007
In 1996 the Palestinians, voting massively for Fatah, expressed their hope for a just peace with Israel. This hope has, however, been frustrated by Israel's systematic violation of the Oslo Accords, which stipulated that Israel should withdraw its troops from and dismantle its settlements on 90% of the Occupied Territories.

Having taken office after his provocative stride across the Aqsa esplanade, Sharon stopped the withdrawal of the army and further increased the pace of settlement construction - or, to be more precise, racially segregated cities which inhabitants are armed to the teeth and operate as auxiliary militias of the Tsahal. As if this would not suffice, Sharon started the construction of the "security wall" resulting in the military annexation of a further 7% of the Palestinian land thus violating again the US resolutions.
