Gaza families, UN staff send message of light to Americans

Palestinians urge U.S. citizens to press Trump to release frozen U.S. aid and open blockade in Gaza

August 14, 2018 (Gaza City, Palestine) — On Tuesday, August 14th at 9pm, UN staff and their families, including doctors, trauma counselors, social workers, bus drivers and engineers, will gather at the Gaza Training College, just behind the headquarters of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Due to the lack of electricity, they will gather in the darkness of a punitive black-out to send a message of light to the American people. They are set to shine cellphone flashlight messages urging U.S. citizens to press the Trump administration to release frozen U.S. aid and to open the blockade.

ACTION for GAZA: Email Congress NOW — and we'll put Gazans on the phone briefing

In this time of crisis, I am writing to ask for your urgent action:

EMAIL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES NOW

Gazans are standing by to join teleconference briefings with Congressional staff — As soon as you and two more from your district send your email, our team at Rebuilding Alliance will schedule the briefings and invite you to join the calls.
