Immediate cease fire-Solidarity to the people of Lebanon and Palestine: A call for an international civil mission to Lebanon
The Israeli war machine continues to kill hundreds of Lebanese civilians and destroy Lebanon's infrastructure. The humanitarian crisis is getting worse as days go by. International community (United Nations and European Union included) is unable or unwilling to stop the massacre. Furthermore, the United States support Israeli aggression both politically ant practically. We believe that this is the time for the intervention of social movements. It is extremely important to find the way to make citizen's voice to be heard. It is critical to promote the demand for an immediate cease fire.
As we did during the siege of Arafat's compound, we propose to organize an international civil mission to Lebanon. Such a mission would express our solidarity to the people of Lebanon and Palestine and demand the immediate cease fire.
In Greece we have already started the preparation of a civil mission. Right now it seems highly possible that the first part of the mission will arrive at the area today (Saturday 29.07.2006).
We know that activists from all over Europe are interested in participating in the project. We are sure that altogether we can construct a unified international mission.
It is time to act!
