Lift The Gaza Blockade – our ad in The Times

38 Degrees members decided that Israel’s attack on activists aboard ships taking aid to Gaza needed a response. Over 90% of us said we should come together to demand David Cameron and Nick Clegg act to ensure a proper international response. In the last few hours thousands of us have taken action by signing the petition.

Today we teamed up with Oxfam, CAFOD, MADE, MAP and Mercy Corps to take our message to the Government by taking out a full page ad in The Times urging call for an emergency international conference to life the blockade of Gaza. The ad’s below.

Today four out of five men, women and children in Gaza rely on humanitarian aid, yet the aid allowed into Gaza is only a fraction of what is needed. Urge our government to take action by texting “LIFT” to 70066 (charged at your standard network rate) or signing the “lift the gaza blockade” petition here.
