Gaza faces an imminent risk of starvation under a complete blockade imposed by the Israeli army. The silence of the CFS Plenary on the situation is shameful. Measures taken so far are not only modest but insufficient to move towards effective and operational proposals to address the food situation.
Union of Agricultural Work Committees is spearheading an international campaign to provide aid to Gaza and the West Bank. The aid will support thousands of affected Palestinian families by providing food, water, and life essentials to bolster their resilience against the crimes of the Israeli occupation seeking to displace them.
The ongoing crisis in the Gaza Strip has reached alarming proportions, with its impact echoing far beyond its immediate geographic confines. At the core of this escalating disaster is the fundamental human right to food—a right that is now perilously under threat for the Palestinian residents of Gaza.
Every action counts in this moment. We request all our members, allies and friends to read the PETITION, SIGN and email it to the concerned departments in your government, as well as the UN Secretary-General calling upon all of them to act in the interest of humanity.
The deprivation of water is not just a violation of basic human rights but also a testament to the ongoing oppression faced by the Palestinian people. Gaza main freshwater source cannot meet daily demands because of high salinity and pollution most of the water is undrinkable.
We are deeply shocked and outraged by the escalation of crimes against humanity committed by the Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. As a global peasant movement, we firmly reject violence against civilians and military conflict to resolve disputes.
