Open the Al-Bweira Roads

Upper Hudson Peace Action is asking members of the US Campaign to pick up their pens and phones to help open the road to the West Bank town of Al-Bweira. This is one more step in our effort to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
Forcing emergency vehicles to take a time consuming, five kilometer detour over rough, rutted
roads in order to reach your home could be more than an inconvenience
when you’re waiting for them to arrive. But thanks to the Israeli Army’s
triple blockade of the Al-Bweira Road, that’s how it’s been for more than ten years in the Palestinian farming neighborhood of Al-Bweira.

Help the effort to gain quick access for emergency vehicles. Help the families in Al-Bweira so they can again drive directly to or from the near-by city of Hebron. A ten-year blockade of this community is ten too many years!
