In less than 72 hours over 150,000 people from every country have signed Avaaz’s emergency petition calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. But as the situation continues to escalate, and news emerges that calls for a temporary truce have been rejected, we must amplify our global public outcry and seek to end the violence on both sides.
It is not too late to add your name to the petition below!
The answer to this crisis, lies with the international community actively intervening and mediating between Israel and all Palestinian parties. Our petition is already being heard by the UN, the EU, the USA and the Arab League. But as the humanitarian crises worsens — there are already over 370 dead — we must raise our voices even louder. Over the coming days, we will increasingly use the petition numbers to advocate for a ceasefire, so click here now sign the petition and then send to your friends.
Thanks for all you do and have a peaceful 2009!
The Avaaz Team
