Let your voice be heard! Here are some officials you can contact depending on where you live.

Let them know that you demand:

  • A swift, impartial and independent investigation on behalf of the UN Security Council into the Flotilla raid and killing of at least nine civilians with full powers to demand all evidence and interviews of witnesses.
  • An end to the brutal and inhumane blockade policy that led citizens of the world to take action in order to break the crippling isolation of Palestinians living in Gaza. Governments must insist that forthcoming ships headed to Gaza are allowed to land with no interference from the Israeli authorities, who have promised to use even greater force.
