Dear Arne ,
Global Day to Break Israeli Siege!
In response to and commemoration of
the barbaric attack on the Freedom Flotilla earlier this week, the BDS
National Committee is launching the Global Day to Break the Israeli Siege as an international day of action
and protest in front of Israeli embassies and consulates around the world.
Please help us mark Saturday the
5th of June as the Global Day to Break the Israeli Siege by organizing protests on this day in your city in front of Israeli
consulates and corporations and institutions tied to Apartheid Israel
around the world. This call is not only to protest Israel's barbaric
attacks but also to cut all diplomatic ties, whether economic, political,
acadamic or cultural, until Israel abides fully with international law and
stops it's crimes against all humanity.
We want this to be an internationally coordinated movement and therefore
ask you to register your event on our website. Events are already
scheduled in cities across the globe, including London, Toronto, San
Francisco, and Barcelona!
We stand today at an urgent and critical point in our global quest
for justice and human rights. The brutal attack on activists aboard the
Gaza Freedom Flotilla, resulting in at least 19 deaths and tens of
injuries, proves that Israel indiscriminately targets human rights
advocates of all nationalities. We must not allow this massacre to pass
Please forward this call to all
human rights activists and civil society groups and ask them to endorse it.
Keep up the pressure to lift the
siege of Gaza,
