Together let’s end the Blockade of Gaza!
How many more generations of Palestinians must live in the oldest and largest open-air prison in world history, a manifestation of 66 years of occupation, and a crime against humanity that is increasingly more oppressive? Israeli settlements in the West Bank expand as Palestinian access to water and land, food and sea diminishes. Trade in and out of Gaza is all but prohibited, while the economy and well being of the people languish. The desire and need for contact with the world outside this prison exists. Their need to use and hone their natural skills increases. The need for education increases. The need for good health care increases. The need for children to play and grow without the threat of bombs and tanks and guns increases.
