 PLEASE HELP: An appeal from Palestine


 Dear All,

This is an appeal that we are sending to you - from Palestine, and we ask

that you distribute it as widely as possible. Wherever you think it

might be seen, and responded to. Local press, church magazines, schools,


as an advertisement in a newspaper... the message needs to get out, and for

this we need your help.

For more information please call Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi on 972 50 254218

With kind regards,

The Palestine Monitor


Appeal to the World


The situation in Palestine is verging on that of a humanitarian crisis. The

Palestinian population,


3.2 million people, is currently under the worst siege in their entire history.


* People are unable to move between Palestinian villages and towns, and

goods cannot be transported.


* Large parts of many cities and villages are under 24 hour, or

dusk-to-dawn curfews; tanks and armoured personal carriers sit in the

streets, outside homes.


* A shortage of supplies is being reported in some areas, including gas and



* Sewage and garbage remains uncollected, presenting a public health crisis.


* Vaccinations and primary health care systems are paralysed, and epidemics

are possible


* Patients in need of kidney dialysis and cancer treatment cannot receive

it; in addition to this, 30 Palestinians have died after being denied

access to medical care, and numerous women have given birth at the Israeli

military blockades.


* Most universities and schools are not functioning.


* More than 50% of the population is unemployed; furthermore many employed

people are unable to get to their places of work.


* Heavily armed Israeli soldiers arbitrarily occupy civilians homes.


* Israeli soldiers make armed raids into areas under Palestinian Authority,

shooting people in their homes, and arresting others.


Palestinians are being punished through a combination of occupation,

military aggression & siege.


During the past 14 months the Israeli army has killed 924 Palestinians and

25,000 others have been injured which is 1% of the population. 2,000 people

have become permanently disabled.


Without your actions the situation can only worsen. We call on you to

contact your representatives to prevent this humanitarian crisis from

becoming a disaster.

I know this is not strictly Trident, but it is yet another example of the

kind of terrorism that the nuclear states get away with......and Angie is

there at the moment as part of the International Peace Group. Please do

what you can
