International Movement to Open the Rafah Border appeal for peace camp solidarity

June 18, 2009

The International Movement to Open the Rafah Border is still holding out in Rafah. Conditions are tough. The following message came in last night and appears to refer to events on Tuesday. I haven’t changed the text as it is obviously translated.

At the Rafah Border - Tuesday 16th. May, International Movement to Open the Rafah Border

At the Rafah Border - Tuesday 16th. May, International Movement to Open the Rafah Border

“Yesterday was a really hard day with all the sick and wounded Palestinians waiting hours under the sun (held up by?) the egyptian authorities agreement on entering into Gaza. All the other people have been denied to exit Egypt. 

Our friends, Paki Wieland, Ellen Graves, and Don Bryant, USA pursue their hunger strikes. 

After talking with our embassies, we have understood that the siege at the Rafah border is an Egypt’s exclusive decision. Israel has nothing to do in this closure. Please send emails, fax to your Egyptian embassy and tell them how shameful this situation is. 

We managed to convince Elona to go to an hotel in al Arish with her children; Hope Egypt will allow them to enter soon but as many Egyptians know , the Moubarak government don’t care about people”.
