International Movement to Open Rafah Border

gaza strip  
After the massacre of the people of Gaza by the Israeli army that
started on December, 27th 2008, the world was moved at the plight of
Palestinians. But Gaza remains closed almost hermetically, humanitarian
convoys accumulate at the border and only a small part is allowed to
enter. Similarly, citizens of various countries, including many
Palestinians are stranded in Egypt

Dont let Gaza die


After the massacre of the people of Gaza by the Israeli army that
started on December, 27th 2008, the world was moved at the plight of
Palestinians. But Gaza remains closed almost hermetically, humanitarian
convoys accumulate at the border and only a small part is allowed to
enter. Similarly, citizens of various countries, including many
Palestinians are stranded in Egypt.

We, citizens of the world, oppose this illegal and deadly blockade,
tolerated, not to say encouraged by most governments of the world,
especially those of USA, Israel, Europe and many of the Arab countries.
Once again, it seems that only civil society is able to mobilize to
demand the application of the basic rights of people that are echoed in
international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(December, 10th 1948).*

Therefore, we call any individual or group (association, organisation,
party, etc.) to participate, within its means, to establish a permanent
sit-in at the border in Rafah, to put pressure on the Egyptian, US,
European and Israeli governments, and also on the international
community, until the definitive opening of the border between Gaza and
Egypt, allowing the free movement of goods and people.

TO FREE GAZA, TO BREAK THE SIEGE, FOR FREE MOVEMENT

ALL AT RAFAH , NOW !

* Article 13.

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.

(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country

ولماذا الضغط على مصر وليس مساعدتها لفك الحصار الايكفيها ما تتعرض له من اغواءات وضغوط انا اوقع على البيان مع تحفظي على ما ذكرت واطالب كل من يستطيع المساهمة في ممارسة الضغوط على الحكومات الاوروبية والامريكية والاسرائيلية ان يفعل .
