For the past 18 months Israel has
been blockading Gaza, preventing food, medical supplies and fuel to
enter the Gaza strip, and creating a humanitarian crisis which has been
condemned by countless organizations, including the United Nations,
Oxfam, the European Union and the Physicians for Human Rights - Israel.

Israeli airstrikes on Gaza have
killed 400 people and injured 1700 at last count. Israel is refusing
calls for a ceasefire and planning a ground invasion that would
inevitably leave thousands of civilians dead. Richard Falk UN
Rapporteur on the Palestinian Territories called for an immediate end
to the attacks, saying, "Israel is committing a shocking series of
atrocities by using modern weaponry against a defenceless population."
