Take Action: End the Siege, Stop the Wall
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is calling for two weeks of action in November, to end the siege of Gaza and bring down the Apartheid Wall. On November 2-8, take action to end the siege of Gaza. This week is the one year mark of Israel's breaking of the cease-fire in Gaza prior to its all-out assault in Dec. 2008/Jan. 2009. These actions will set the stage for December's Gaza Freedom March. Take media action, organize an event or action, meet with your Member of Congress, and find out more about the Gaza Freedom March. A plethora of resources for action are available here. Then, join human rights advocates around the world as we mark the 7th annual week of action against Israel's Apartheid Wall on the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Check out action ideas, talking points, resources for media action, and information on the village of Bil'in and its struggle against the Apartheid Wall by clicking here. Join together with groups across the United States and around the world--take action in November to end the siege, end apartheid, and end the occupation!
