Letter to Greek Parliament members from Canadian Initiation

Δημοσιεύτηκε στην κατηγορία News - Announcements
Respected Member of Greek Parliament;

In contrast to the Canadian Government’s position towards the people of
Palestinian, which has for years been biased in favour of Israel, as
exemplified by Canada's vote against a UN ceasefire resolution during
Israel's attack on Gaza in January 2009, Greece has always been a fair
supporter of Palestinian rights.  We understand the extreme pressure
that Greece has been put under during its difficult economic
crisis.However, we call on you not to let that be a reason for your
great country to act unjustly or to be manipulated by Israel or anyone

We ask that you continue what has been your historical position:
defending human rights and international law.

As a member of Greek Parliament, we request you to act on behalf of
true democracy and demand that the Greek government reverse its current
position blockading the Freedom Flotilla II boats (and the hundreds of
civilian human rights defenders and journalists who are on board) in
Greek ports and allow the boats to sail to Gaza without delay.

The Canadian Boat to Gaza, the Tahrir, and all the Freedom Flotilla II
boats have nothing but noble aims; to show solidarity with the blockaded
population of Gaza, to deliver much needed humanitarian aid to them, and
to non-violently challenge Israel's illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip,
which violates international law and inflicts grave hardship on the 1.6
million residents of the Strip.

Please allow the ships to leave and go to the people of Gaza.

Yours Sincerely,
Canadian Boat to Gaza
