more snow and season of goodwill

It’s been snowing here all morning looks really great – will go out now and put water into the bird bowl as it has frozen over from last night and just check there is enough food for the poor wee things.  Have’nt see the fat pigeosn for a while but a funny looking one turned up yesterday not sure what it is but it is always welcome.

As it is the seaons of goodwill am putting the letter to send to your mps etc below and contact details for those who are interested let’s get the convoy into egypt and through to gaza:

TEMPLATE LETTER:

[Your address]

Dear ——

I have been following the progress of a convoy taking aid to the Gaza strip. The convoy consists of over 200 vehicles carrying many thousands of pounds worth of aid, and has been organized by Viva Palestina and The Palestine Solidarity Campaign. Many of the activists taking part have gone from the United Kingdom.

It has recently come to my attention that Egyptian authorities have blocked the progress of the convoy by denying entry to Egypt. The convoy is currently waiting in Jordan to be permitted to board a ferry across the Red Sea. I have heard from one person in the convoy who has described how they are cold and have little access to food at the moment.

I am kindly requesting that you use your position and influence to help us persuade the Egyptian authorities to permit the convoy to pass safely. This is very important to me, both for my hope that the people in Gaza will receive the much-needed aid, and also out of concern for my friends in the convoy.

Kind regards,

[Your full name]
