Please protest about this to your MP

Fifty people have now died on the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing, according to Dr Mona El Farra, VP of the Palestinian Red Crescent and Director of the Middle East Children's Association. Sadly, Dr Mona has also suffered the death of her mother who was in Gaza and whom she was unable to reach due to the crossing closure. Approximately 6000 people remain trapped unable to go back to their families in Gaza. The injustice is appalling yet remains largely ignored by the MSM, who remain uninterested in yet another example of Palestinian suffering. The Egyptian and Israeli authorities are responsible for the situation and must be pressured to allow the crossing to reopen. Not to do so, is simply inhuman and callous.
