Call the State Department, White House in Support of Freedom Waves Flotilla to Gaza

- Gaza has been under siege since mid-2006, depriving 1.6 million people of their liberty and basic human rights.
- Although the siege has been condemned by the United Nations, the Red Cross, and many national governments as in violation with the Fourth Geneva Convention, nothing has been done to ease the plight of these civilians. Civil society has had to act where governments would not.
- Two ships with 27 passengers from 5 countries, including one American, are sailing to Gaza to confront the Israeli naval blockade, and to bring medical supplies and letters of support.
- As Americans we insist that our government (which sends Israel $3 billion in military aid every year) demands that Israel insures the ships’ safe passage and ends its illegal blockade of Gaza. There is absolutely no excuse to subject 1.6 million people to collective punishment.
