The Gaza Freedom March appeals directly to President Mubarak
In an open letter, the organizers of the Gaza Freedom March, representing 1362 individuals from 43 countries, are appealing directly to President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt to grant them passage into Gaza.
After being in communication with the Egyptian government for months, denying the March passage to Gaza, which was only communicated to them this past Sunday came as a shock to the organizers. "We had no other option but to appeal to the President directly." said Ann Wright, the March's coordinators.
The letter, attached, will be delivered to the presidential palace in Heliopolis, tomorrow, Saturday, by representatives of the March.
