November 15 — ADC strongly condemns the continuing Israeli aggression and indiscriminate slaughter of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. ADC calls on the Obama Administration to stop supporting the continued Israeli aggression, and take measures to stop Israel's continued violations of international and human rights laws.
Reports indicate that the Israeli air strikes over the past two days have killed dozens of people in Gaza and have left hundreds more injured, some of which are in critical condition. Even more troubling is that some of those killed are infants and children. These strikes come at a time while Gaza is still under an illegal blockade which has left many of Gaza's 1.8-million inhabitants without sufficient food, water, fuel or medicine. The population of Gaza is 2/3 refugee and more than half are under the age of 16. The UN has listed Gaza as the most densely populated area in the world with a population density that is higher than that of Manhattan.
Contact the White House at 202-456-1111 and theState Department at 202-647-6575, and demand the Administration to take the following measures:
- Exert immediate pressure on Israel to end its violent aggression;
- Demand that Israel immediately lift its illegal blockade and siege of Gaza.
ADC will continue to follow the situation in Palestine, and continue to pressure the Obama administration to
