Cal For Action: Water Convoy to the Unrecognized Village of Tel-Arad
Join the Water Convoy to the Unrecognized Village of Tel-AradSaturday,
16 July 2005
76,000 Bedouin Citizens of Israel including 35, 000 children and babies suffer
from severe shortage of water, while their Jewish neighbors who live in small
localities enjoy a profusion of water for drinking and for agriculture.
The Israeli government treats the Bedouins of the Unrecognized Villages
as second class citizens and prevents them from obtaining basic services
such as housing, education, medical services, electricity,
garbage collection and running water.
