News & Action
As we celebrated a long weekend and remembered those who have lost their lives in war, we hear that Israeli Navy has attacked the 6 ships of the Gaza flotilla which were carrying humanitarian aid to the 1.5 million people living under occupation in the Gaza strip.
At this point we are hearing only from the Israelis that the ships were intercepted and that anywhere from 10 -19 activists have been killed and dozens wounded. The remaining activists have been taken into custody in Israel and we are only hearing one version of the events. But a few things are known:
This must be a turning point for U.S. policy toward Israel.
We need to hear from our President and our Congress a STRONG CONDEMNATION of this abominable attack and it must be accompanied by action: an immediate cut off of all aid to Israel and sustained pressure on Israel to lift the siege of Gaza.
Call for an immediate inquiry.
We are calling on peace-loving people everywhere to:
Don't let up - now is the time our voices must make a difference.
