Petition Call for an immediate end to the Israeli blockade on the people of Gaza
COVID-19 is uniquely threatening to the people of Gaza. The 1.8 million Palestinians cannot safely self-isolate – there simply isn't space – and no one can leave the region.
On top of that, Israel has not allowed sufficient medical supplies, including tests, to enter. It's a catastrophe waiting to happen.
Gaza has already reported its first cases of COVID-19 and after 13 years of conflict and blockade, Palestinians in Gaza face a severe shortage of resources and medical personnel. Health officials warn that containment and treatment under the Israeli blockade will be nearly impossible.
Together we demand that Parliament call on Israel to end the blockade NOW, before more life is needlessly lost.
