"Mr. President, Please ask the Israelis to not harm our boats and to let us proceed to Gaza. The Israelis are paying attention and have printed stories about our boats in both the Jerusalem Post and Ha'aretz. We are doing nothing more than what you have already requested the Israelis to do: ease up on the Gaza blockade. Please ask the Israelis to allow us to proceed to Gaza without harm. Sincerely, Cynthia McKinney"
You, too, can contact the White House (http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/) and ask them to send a message to Israel requesting our safe passage to Gaza. We pose no threat to Israel and represent real hope for change in US policy for the people of Gaza. I also contacted the State Department and the Justice Department with similar messages.
We are in a group training now. What will we do if . . . I'll upload pictures and some video (if I've mastered this video camera) to our http://dignity.ning.com and http://www.livestream.com/dignity pages. Please visit all of our pages listed below and join!!
DIGNITY will be planning some direct actions inside the U.S., too. Additionally, I have communicated with the authorities re: Troy Davis and am in communication with Peltier's attorney.
As always, I do look forward to hearing from you!!
