The Israeli military has attacked unarmed Palestine solidarity activists bringing aid to blockaded and besieged Gaza. A flotilla of international activists set said for Gaza bearing food, aid, and solidarity with the Gazan people. For this “crime,” they were attacked by Israeli commandos who boarded the humanitarians’ ships and opened fire. We know of at least ten activists killed, many wounded, and all have been detained by the Israeli military. This coincides with a new assault on Gaza. Come to an emergency action in protest of Israeli’s relentless violence against the Palestinian people and those who stand in solidarity with them.
- President Obama and Congress: Condemn the Israeli assault!
- Release the kidnapped activists!
- Let the Freedom Flotilla deliver humanitarian aid!
- Lift the siege on Gaza!
