What can we do for gaza? Sign a Petition. A start.

With the world we are in today, I am sure we are all aware of this injustice and oppression that is being inflicted on Palestine. We at times feel helpless, offering prayers for the deceased and the injured. But if we harness the power of the internet we can overcome this, for a start please sign the below petitions.

 

For Palestine: Please sign this petition, it’s the very least we can do! All you need to do is sign the petition by putting in your email address, it takes 5 seconds. Link; http://www.avaaz.org/en/gaza_end_the_siege/

Demand Abdulhadi al-Khawaja’s Release Before It Is Too Late

Salaam Alaykum,

Please read the below message from the daughter of Abdulhadi al Khawaja asking everyone to sign the petition for the release of her father. Please make sure you sign the petition!

No one wanted it to come to this, but it has.
My father, prominent Bahraini human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, is on a 9-week hunger strike protesting the life sentence he received for peaceful protest

In prison, security forces broke his jaw in four placesand subjected him to severe physical, psychological and sexual torture. Since his arrest last year, my mother was fired from her job, my sister was arrested five times, and my brothers-in-law were arrested and tortured. 

Authorities decide when to let anyone from my family see him. The human rights of my family and of thousands of peaceful Bahrainis like us have been deeply violated by the government. 

My father doesn’t want to end his life. He wants to end injustice and violence against the Bahraini people

Help me break through now, to save his life.

Many governments have shamefully ignored the daily and widespread human rights violations in my country. As controversy swirls around Bahrain’s plans to host the Grand Prix auto race this month, Bahraini authorities desperately try to assure the world that all is back to “business as usual.” But the people of Bahrain continue to call for change, and my father may pay for that goal with his life. Pressure from people like you may force action. 

As one activist to another, I ask for your help securing the release of my father and of all of the unjustly imprisoned activists in Bahrain. Delay could mean death. 

Please take action for my father today. I am forever grateful for your support. 

In solidarity, 

Maryam al-Khawaja
