Stop Bulldozers. Hundreds of houses being demolished at Rafah.
Date: 25 May, 2004
This is the implementation of plans which the army formulated already in 2001 and which were carried out piecemeal over the past three years. American peace activist Rachel Corrie was killed when trying to block bulldozers carrying out such demolitions. We calls up on supporters of peace, justice and housing right worldwide to mobilize their governments and civic organizations to act immediately and come out against this war crime while it is not yet fully perpetuated – the premeditated massive destruction of homes, making hundreds of families homeless – most of them refugee families already uprooted once. Now is the last minute to act against the Sharon government’s Grand Design (to create an Israeli-controlled buffer zone – “Philadelphia Route” so as to permanently cut off the Gaza Strip from all access to the outside world – in effect turning Gaza into a huge prison camp).
