March on Gaza, Jan. 1, 2010 - Gaza Shall Not Die!
Norman Finkelstein and other prominent activists are asking that people converge on Gaza on Jan. 1st, 2010 to break the siege of Gaza. Go with them, or support someone else who's willing to go. Events to raise money to send people to Gaza are planned throughout the Fall.
As for the march itself, tentative plans are for 5000+ international marchers to enter into Gaza through Rafah, and then exit through the Erez crossing, "with 500,000 Gazans behind us." Help make it happen!
For more details see Norm Finkelstein's web site and facebook groups.
“This march draws inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi,” according to a statement by the Coalition to End the Illegal Siege of Gaza. The statement also outlines plans for the march, which will take place on January 1, 2010. “We will march the Long Mile across Erez checkpoint alongside the people of Gaza in a nonviolent demonstration that breaches the illegal blockade,” it said, adding that “We conceive this march as the first step in a protracted nonviolent campaign … If we bring thousands to Gaza and millions more around the world watch the march on the internet, we can end the siege without a drop of blood being shed.”
