Call for Cross-#Canada and International Day of Action for #Gaza Fishers and Farmers: September 30, 2012 (#FreePalestine #GazaArk)

Gaza’s Ark endorses this call and will be present in support of Palestinians. Our own mission is to disclose the illegality of the Israeli blockade of Gaza. We work with the Palestine Sailing Federation and the Fishermen’s Solidarity Campaign in Gaza. WE encourage everyone to attend and participate!


A call from the Union of Agricultural Work Committees in Palestine
The farmers and fishers of Gaza, Palestine are under siege as they work to defend their land and sea from occupation and continue their harvest and their livelihoods. Many people in Gaza have always relied on the land and the sea for their livelihood. Generations of Palestinian fishers have worked the sea, and farmers harvested the land, to support their communities and their lives. Today, the fishers and farmers of Gaza are under attack – braving death and imprisonment to continue to harvest the land and sea. The Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) in Palestine has called for international action and solidarity to support fishers and farmers under siege.
The UAWC, a grassroots organization that works to support Palestinian agricultural workers and develop their steadfastness on their land, connected with the Vancouver Delegation to Gaza on our recent delegation, and has initiated a call to organizations across Canada, and around the world, to hold events, actions and protests in solidarity with Fishers and Farmers under attack in Gaza and throughout Palestine on a Day of Action on Sunday, September 30, 2012.
