URGENT! Support the amendment to address the blockade of Gaza

Senator Sanders has introduced an amendment to the NDAA to require a report on the suffering caused by the blockade of Gaza and how the blockade might be ended. Tell your Senators that you want them to support Bernie’s amendment to Let Gaza Live!

Gaza has been under Israeli blockade for the past decade, during which time Israel has also launched countless attacks against the besieged population, turning their life into a nightmare and a continuous struggle. The blockade denies Palestinians in the Gaza Strip their basic human rights, in contravention of International Law. It severely limits their possibility to import and export merchandise and to travel in and out of their country. It denies them access to their agricultural lands and fishing grounds. The blockade is a form of collective punishment, which deprives the inhabitants the possibility to support themselves, security of food supplies, medical care, education, drinkable water and cultural exchange.
