Help Us Help Gaza
What we're asking of friends, family, et al:
Despite applying to the Coordination and Liaison Administration for Gaza, the Israeli authority responsible for the Gaza Strip, we are being denied entry. This is unacceptable and international pressure is needed to insist that this humanitarian delegation be allowed in. Please contact the following people/offices and ask that our delegation be let in:
1) Mr. Lior of the Coordination and Liaison Administration for Gaza - 972 50 624 6622
2) Sarah Henkins at the Israel/Palestine Desk of the State Department - 202-647-3265
3) the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel - 972 3–519–7475 or 972 3-519-7551
4) your Member of Congress! - look up their contact information here, you can ask specifically for the LA who works on foreign affairs, which can also be found here - http://capwiz.com/asae/dbq/officials/
Thank you so much for helping the delegation, and for helping the cause of justice for the people of Gaza!
Ericka and I have both been in contact with Welch's office, and I'll continue to press him from Israel. The more people joining the effort back home, the better.
