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,

    The Palestians are being exterminated. This is no more right than the extermination of Jews and other undesirables by Hitler’s regime. Lebensraum is inhuman, period.

    This is ridiculous. How long does Israel think they can keep this unconscionable city-prison going?

    Abrahamic religions and it’s spawn are the biggest lie, perpetrated on mankind.

    To all Abrahamic, All of them and it’s spawn,

    Until you can prove modern Egyptology wrong. All the tales and fables of Egypt are so far out off date, Exodus was impossible, the stories of ‘Isaac and Ishmael’ and Moses are MYTHS at best. Until proven wrong anything after is just speculation making all the Abrahamics a pile of crap. Israelites have no claim to the land of the Canaanites.
