Here’s some armchair activism for you, in protest of the Gaza blockade.
For everyone: sign a petition urging an end to the blockade and a free flow of supplies:
To the United Nations, the European Union, the Quartet, the Arab League & Israel: We demand that you end the blockade and growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, ensure the free flow of supplies by land, sea or air, and help to broker the ceasefire which civilians on both sides desperately need.
For Scots: there is currently a motion before the Scottish Parliament condeming the fuel blockade:
S3M-1188 Bashir Ahmad (Glasgow) (SNP) : Gaza Strip Blackout– That the Parliament condemns the Israeli fuel blockade of the Gaza Strip; believes that both Israel and Palestine have a right to defend their citizens from aggression within international law; agrees with both UN and EU officials that the fuel blockade, which has led to the shutting down of the Gaza Strip’s power stations, equates to collective punishment; expresses grave concern that hospitals are being adversely affected which will undoubtedly result in the loss of further innocent life, and calls on the state of Israel to resume fuel supplies to Gaza immediately.
