Attached is the a "special focus" report by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, occupied Palestinian territary, called: Locked In: The Humanitarian Impact of Two Years of Blockade on the Gaza Strip.

With lots of detail, backed up by exhaustive footnotes, this report details the effect Israel's blockade on Gaza is having on the people there. It details limits on food import and export, the limitations on building materials and the inability to reconstruct in the wake of Israels offensive in December, 2008 to January, 2009. It documents the affect of the limitations Israel places on Gazan fisherman. It documents the affects of Israel's limitation on fuel importation which includes the fact that only 5 - 10 percent of Gazan water supplies meet quality standards.

Though it's written dispassionately, it certainly brings up a lot of emotions. It is important to read and will certainly help you convice others to join Jewish Fast for Gaza.
