Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition

November 17, 2008

For Immediate Release

Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, calls on all its chapters and members, supporting organizations and individuals to organize demonstrations to demand an end to the siege of the Gaza Strip.

On November 5, Israel completely sealed the Strip’s border crossings after launching an unprovoked attack that killed six Palestinians. Most of the Gaza Strip is without power due to lack of fuel, and The United Nations has been forced to stop food distribution to those in need.

The humanitarian situation is dire for the people in the Gaza Strip, most importantly the children. The strip is home to 1.5 million Palestinians, 80% of whom are refugees denied by the Zionist state the right to return to their homes and lands of origin from which they were expelled by the Zionist occupation in 1948.
