*Free Gaza***

Action Days against the Siege and Occupation

5-14.6.2009

Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Gaza Border

Coalition of Women for Peace with Code Pink and the Coalition against the
Siege

A million and a half residents of the Gaza Strip have been suffering for
years from ongoing siege and Israeli assaults, which peaked in the recent
War. Israel's severe military aggression has become possible due to a
gradual process of isolating Gaza – politically, geographically,
economically and socially. While Israel portrayed the disengagement as if it
were the end of occupation, it actually made Gaza into the largest prison on
earth.

The Gaza Strip was occupied by Israel in 1967, along with the West Bank. Its
residents are part of the Palestinian people which lost their lands in 1948.
Since then, the state of Israel persists and intensifies its control over
the Palestinians. By doing so Israel confirms that the Nakba is not yet
over. Ending the occupation, lifting the siege and realizing the right of
return are all vital elements in achieving a just peace.
