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, and 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.
