End the Siege of Gaza!

CODEPINK and Coalition of Women for Peace in Israel/Palestine say End the Siege on Gaza!

To EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini and UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez: 

We call on you to fulfill your responsibilities towards the residents of Gaza by demanding Israel end the siege! We call on you to include women and youth in all policy decisions related to Gaza and hold Israel accountable for its violations of human rights.

Organizations and international institutions are warning that Gaza is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis in spite of the humanitarian aid provided by the international community. Already now, Gaza is facing a water crisis, extreme pollution, electricity shortage, restricted access to health services and education as well as economic distress. All these hardships turn life into a daily struggle for survival for Gaza’s residents, both women and men. Amidst all this, women are dealing with a wide range of gender-specific challenges. This situation is the cumulative outcome of a decade-long siege on Gaza, in addition to the frequent military offensives on the strip every few years, and the failed attempts at reconstruction in-between these rounds.

Gaza is blockaded on 3 sides by Israel. All food, medical supplies and other materials entering Gaza must be approved by Israel. Israel has repeatedly refused to fulfill its obligations under international law. Therefore, we turn to the UN and EU, to hold Israel accountable and to ensure human rights and life for Gaza's residents.

Sincerely,

    Regardless of the wrongs and rights in the Israel / Palestine conflict it is simply not acceptable for the majority of innocent civilians caught up in this conflict to be living in such horrendous conditions.

    The siege of Gaza is a disgrace, and the UN is a disgrace for allowing it.

    I’m lost for words on this because it’s just incredible that a constant slaughtierng of innocent women, children, elderly and yes men too, unarmed, by a fully trained and armed to the hilts army who have no conscience at all about what they are doing. After WWII and the Nazi horrors that this should repeat is beyond my comprehension and no less by progeny of those who were the victims of the horrors of WWII.
