Recived this email from Oxfam this morning - urge people to sign it if they can.


You don't need to be reminded that fighting between the Israeli army and Hamas and other Palestinian militants has intensified in the past two weeks. At the heart of the fighting, innocent women, men and children are being killed, injured and displaced.

Demand an immediate ceasefire and protect civilians on both sides

The situation in Gaza was already severe with a 19 month blockade cutting people off from essential supplies, and four out of five people largely dependent on food aid. But the current conflict has made things dramatically worse. Many people now have little or no access to clean water, food or electricity. Medical and sanitation systems are on the brink of collapse.

Frankly, in the face of such suffering, short-term, piecemeal solutions are not the answer. Oxfam is joining thousands of other organisations around the world in demanding world leaders take responsibility for securing an immediate, comprehensive ceasefire by both parties. No ifs. No buts.


With a total ceasefire in place, vital humanitarian assistance can be delivered. Civilians on all sides can feel safer. And negotiations for a long-term solution for both communities can begin again.

Demand an immediate ceasefire and protect civilians on both sides

Please add your name to our call for peace. We'll send your message directly to our leaders and we'll get back to you to tell you about the impact of your support.

And finally, please spread this urgent message now by forwarding this email to your friends, colleagues and family.

Together, we can make a difference.

I dont recall loads as "2" threads. One which is a deathmatch one and one which is expired. Spam this thread and consider it as a infraction for yourself or a warning.
