The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Demonstration near the Gaza border: Put out the Fire – Rebuild Gaza!!
Other Voice invites you to stand with us:
Friday, 18th May, 2018, 12:00 – 14:00
Yad Mordechai Junction
For the last year, Other Voice from Sderot and communities in the
surrounding Gaza region has held quiet demonstrations at the Yad Mordechai
junction. Our aim is to draw attention to the unbearable conditions in the
Gaza Strip and to the deep despair of its residents.
For over a decade, we have called upon our government to stop the bloodshed,
to enter into negotiations with the Hamas, to end the blockade and to
develop a long-term program for the rehabilitation and rebuilding of the
Gazan economy. Such a move can make it possible for our neighbors, and for
us, to have hope, personal safety and dignity.
The killing of over one hundred Gazans and the harming of thousands of
demonstrators, who came to protest near the border, alongside the
protestors’ burning of fields in kibbutzim and mosahvim in the surrounding
region have, yet again, brought the area to a dangerous boiling point.
We will be demonstrating this Friday at the junction.
Hundreds of people from a number of organizations will join us:
Combatants for Peace, Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families for Peace,
Standing Together, Breaking the Silence, Meretz, and others.
Come stand with us!

In recent days, violence at the fence with Gaza has reached new heights.
Dozens of Palestinians have been killed and thousands more have been
injured. Rather than working towards a solution to the worsening situation,
the Israeli government instead chooses violence and continues to intensify
Members of Other Voice will join at Yad-Mordechai Junction this Friday, May
18 from 12 to 2 pm, together with Breaking The Silence, The Parents Circle,
Meretz, Combatants for Peace, Standing Together, and more.
Together we will call:
- Stop the shooting of unarmed protestors
- End the siege of the Gaza Strip
- Promote Israeli-Palestinian peace which will provide civilians from both
sides of the fence with hope, security, and dignity.
