Assalamu Alaikum, Peace and Blessings to all…
This is our first post on our new blog! We hope to use this as a forum to share our views of and experiences with important and relevant issues from around the world.
Our first major project will be our trip to the Gaza Strip at the end of this month with the Gaza Freedom March, in which 1,400 people from over 40 countries will converge in Cairo, then enter into the Gaza Strip through the Rafah Border with Egypt. We will then meet up with over 50,000 Gazans and embark on the 3-mile march to the Erez border crossing with Israel to demand an end to the inhumane siege and illegal blockade that has been placed on the entire population. There will also be another delegation which will march from the other side of the border (from Israel) and meet us at the Erez crossing.
We hope to make an enormous impact both on a local and global scale, through media, internet, videos and images to bring the message of the Palestinian people to the world!
Stay tuned to be kept up-to-date on each step of our journey, and in the meantime feel free to watch this video which explains the purpose and logistics of the march.
In peace & solidarity,
