From LA Jews for Peace …

Protest Dire Conditions in Gaza — Military Action/Occupation is Not the Answer!

B’Tselem, the Israeli human rights organization, state in their 2007 year-end report that the humanitarian situation in Gaza has declined to an all-time low. And the situation is already worse in the third week of January – Israeli’s limitation on fuel supplies forced the Gaza power plant to cut production, and that is causing daily rolling blackouts for the 1.5 million people living in the Gaza Strip.

Change will occur when the people make it clear that they will not stand for the United States supporting Israel in its siege of Gaza. You can Help Stop the Ongoing Humanitarian Crisis in the Gaza Strip in two ways:

1. Join LA Jews for Peace and many other American, Israeli, Palestinian, and international groups in calling for an end of Israel’s siege of Gaza, and an end of U.S. support of Israel’s practice of collective punishment.

Promenade at the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. 

Sunday, January 20, 2 to 4 PM

LA Jews for Peace will have large signs that say:

FEED the CHILDREN of GAZA

ISRAEL MUST END SIEGE of GAZA

END US SUPPORT for ISRAEL’S SIEGE of GAZA

END US $$$ for ISRAELI SIEGE of GAZA

Bring your own similar signs that relate to the situation in Gaza.
but please, no reference to the holocaust or to genocide, and no flags of any nationality.

2. Contribute to Gush Shalom’s Relief Convoy that is scheduled to deliver truckloads of food and other necessary good to the Gaza Strip on Jan. 27. Americans can make a tax-exempt contribution as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Make a check out to “Eschaton/Gush Shalom” part of a 501(c)(3) organization.
2. Mail your check to: ESCHATON FOUNDATION, 515 Broadway, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
3. Also send an e-mail to correspondence@gush-shalom.org with your check amount so that your contribution can immediately be used to purchase food.
