"I am writing to ask you to join Amnesty Internationalís global vigil calling for an immediate and effective ceasefire to the conflict in Israel and Lebanon and to stand in solidarity with
the victims and survivors on both sides. On Monday, August 7, Amnesty International members across the world including in Israel and in Lebanon will call for an end to the violence that has claimed so many lives.

The message of this vigil is three-fold:
1) to call for a ceasefire,
2) to demand that all governments stop the supply of arms to the conflict and
3) to stand in solidarity with the victims and survivors from both sides
of this conflict."
