In solidarity with the Gaza Freedom March

Imagine hundreds of international peace activists, led by Alice Walk, Syrian actor Durraid Lahham and other prominent opponents of injustice, entering the Gaza Strip through Egypt. Imagine them linking arms with thousands of Palestinians and marching to the Israeli border, under the eyes of the international media, demanding that the siege be lifted for once and for all. This is the Gaza Freedom March!

This organization has many sister groups, to enable each to have a local focus for organizing, and to avoid exceeding Facebook’s limit of 5000 for messaging group members. Please join the appropriate campaign group that is best targeted to your locale. All FB groups will be updated with the latest information. Please invite your friends to this or the appropriate other FaceBook group.

I left New York City for Cairo on Christmas day, with a long wait in Amsterdam, and this morning at four o’clock made my way to the Sun Hotel near Tahrir Square and the Nile River. Others have come, too -- 1,362 people representing 43 nations -- all of us journeying to Gaza to participate in the “Gaza Freedom March.”
