Kära Palestina vänner, Gazas vänner!

Få kan väl ha undgått att mötas av nyheterna från Gaza de senaste veckorna. Civila Palestinier som fredligt demonstrerat vid gränsen under namnet The Great Gaza March - mot den illegala och inhumana blockaden och för sina basala mänskliga rättigheter och som attackerats, skadats och dödats av Israels militärt tränade prickskyttar.
