CRISIS IN GAZA
One of PDA’s 7 pillars is Ending Wars and Occupations and for this reason as well as the fact that it is the right thing to do, we make the focus of this issue the violent actions taken by Israel against innocent protestors in Gaza. The illegal occupation of Palestine has brought unceasing misery to the lives of the Palestinians and created impossible living conditions for the people of Gaza. As individuals we can’t be the actual brokers for a peaceful resolution to the conflict but we can use our voices to protest Israel’s murderous acts of violence and demand that our government speak out and cease our country’s moral (immoral) and financial support of this violence. Go to the rally, write letters, call your Representatives and Senators, educate your neighbors. And write and call the media and ask them why they have given either tepid or little or no coverage to this outrage.
