HATS OFF TO GAZA

International Solidarity….. are not just words but ACTION. One cannot expect every justice minded person to put their lives on hold (and risk) and board the next mercy ship to Gaza. To even expect this of people is totally unrealistic. There are family commitments, work or school responsibilities, umpteen situations….
BUT…. that does not mean you cannot help.
Back in the 60s, people were faced with similar situations…. how to help the beleaguered victims of US aggression in Vietnam. Not everyone was in the same position as a Jane Fonda, who was able to physically go there to offer her support and solidarity.
BUT…. there were thousands of others who involved themselves in knitting projects…. ‘Blankets for Vietnam’…. These blankets not only warmed the cold children of the nation, but warmed their spirits as well. The feeling that somebody out there cares gave them the inspiration to fight on to their final victory.
A similar movement is under way to help the children of Gaza. Read the following to see how you can get involved…. Be a part of the victory!
Read and support the efforts of THESE wonderful people…..
