On December 31, 2009, over 1,000 representatives from 43 nations around the globe will convene at the Gaza/Egypt border as part of the Gaza Freedom March, reports the Gaza Freedodm March website today.
This event is in response to a growing global initiative, to lift the crippling blockade on Gaza, in order to allow food, medicine, and rebuilding supplies to enter the Palestinian territory.
The international delegates -- including diplomats, doctors, lawyers, students, religious leaders, war veterans, women's groups, and members of the Jewish community -- will enter Gaza via Egypt during the last week in December.
In the morning of December 31, they will join Palestinians in a non-violent march from Northern Gaza to the Erez/Israel border. On the Israeli side of the Erez border will be a gathering of Palestinians and Jews who are also calling on the Israeli government to open the border.
