Open Letter “Open borders to Gaza”

The open letter originated in late June, after a long permanence in Gaza. The devastating impact of Egyptian blockade on top of the Israeli’s occupation and control was already so biting in spring that prompted us to look for rapid and effective means to stop the blockade and allow for people freedom of movement, commerce, study and cure. Gaza was already a sinking economy then. The call was started by Italian people and associations, aiming to bring it rapidly to the Italian presidency of the European Parliament and is presently extending to the other EU countries.
