The situation in Gaza has reached emergency levels -- inadequate water, electricity, and medicine; widespread hunger, poverty, and unemployment; constant attacks on civilians by the Israeli military.

In response to this humanitarian catastrophe, women of Gaza have called on women around the world to come to their support. An international delegation will be traveling to Gaza for March 8, 2014, International Women’s Day. We call on the Egyptian government to grant permission to the delegation to pass through the Rafah crossing.

Answering a call from the women of Gaza, CODEPINK is forming a US delegation of 15 women who will join with a larger international women’s coalition traveling to Gaza for International Women’s Day 2014.
The purpose of the delegation is show solidarity with the women of Gaza, to bring attention to the unbearable suffering caused by the Israeli blockade, to educate people back in our home countries, to push for opening the Gaza borders and to bring solar lamps to help with the electricity shortage.

We will meet in Cairo on March 5. We will attempt to enter Gaza on March 6 and return from Gaza on March 12, 2014. Due to the political and security issues in Egypt, there are no guarantees that we will be able to get into Gaza. If we get to Gaza, we will spend our time meeting with women's groups, human rights leaders, fisherfolk, farmers, UN representatives, youth activists and journalists. If we do not get into Gaza, we will make your time in Cairo very worthwhile.

She/they are saying pretty much the same as was stated by Phyllis Bennis in the RT video from Dec 2013 I linked in the "Goodbye Gaza" story post. (video )
