Lighting the sky of Gaza
Lighting the sky of Gaza

Millions of Gaza residents face an unprecedented humanitarian disaster. We
must not stand idly by!

At the initiative of Zazim (On the Move), thousands of Israeli citizens
signed a petition calling upon the government to avert the impending
disaster and not to cut the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip. Now we
have decided to increase the pressure, so that our call will resonate with
the decision makers in Israel and internationally.

This evening, Monday June 19, we will gather near the Gaza border to launch
into the air 150 sky lanterns (paper lanterns with candles). They would
illuminate the sky in solidarity with the residents of darkened Gaza.

We will meet today at 19:45 in the Big Fashion Ashdod parking lot, near the
Ad Halom Junction, and from there we will proceed to the exact location for
launching the sky lanterns.

For further questions please contact
Gil +972-(0)50-6995265, Raluca +972-(0)50-6314848

We look forward to seeing you!
Together we will light up the sky.

Gil, Zazim

Zazim/On the Move is an independent grassroots organization initiating
