BREAK THE SILENCE ON GAZA!
DON'T DELAY! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!

Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, calls on its chapters,
supporting organizations and individuals to organize to break the silence
about the ongoing Israeli war crimes being committed against Palestinians in
Gaza. Organize street actions and protests, community meetings and
delegations to religious leaders and educators. Call and write the media and
your congressional representatives.

People of the world watch in horror as the racist state of 'Israel', with
the support and encouragement of the US government, engages in a genocidal
project to eliminate the indigenous Arab people of Palestine.

The world community has denounced the government of 'Israel' for using its
military for the purpose of collectively punishing the civilian population
of the Gaza Strip, a clear war crime and violation of the 4th Geneva
Conventions. The only power plant in Gaza was shut down today leaving the
1.5 million inhabitants without electricity, water, or any functional
medical facilities.

Palestinians continue to endure starvation, aerial bombings, US CIA
interventions, and Israeli army brutality. This murderous endeavor has
caused the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians and the already
fragile economy of Gaza has been decimated.

NO FOOD, NO WATER, NO BREAD!

We appeal to all people living in the US:

SPEAK OUT TO DEMAND ONCE AND FOR ALL AN END TO THE SIEGE OF GAZA
AND THE OCCUPATION OF ALL OF PALESTINE!

ORGANIZE STREET ACTIONS AND PROTESTS, CALL AND WRITE THE MEDIA AND
YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES.

ORGANIZE COMMUNITY MEETINGS AND DELEGATIONS TO RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND
EDUCATORS
