Greece Bows to Israel's Politics, Arresting Fasting Anti-Fascist ProtestersSalem-News.com
Call, call, call! Contact your representatives, tell them this treatment of humanitarians is unacceptable...
(ATHENS) - We just received word from Athens that the 8 people who were fasting in front of the U.S. Embassy have been arrested. They are Ken Mayers, Carol Murry, Medea Benjamin, Paki Wieland, Ray McGovern, Brad Taylor, Kit Kitteridge and Kathy Kelly. We will not have any more news until the morning.
U.S. Boat to Gaza said in a statement: "In the meantime, let's keep the pressure on Washington. They need to pressure the Greek government to release our captain, our boat and now these 8 people as well! Let them sail to Gaza!!!
"Throughout this country people have responded to our call to contact the U.S. State Department to demand that they take the steps necessary to ensure that the Greek authorities immediately release the captain and let our boat sail to Gaza. In fact, there has been such a strong response that we are hearing their voice mailboxes are full! That's great, but of course frustrating for those of you trying to make those calls."
Here are some other phone numbers and email addresses to try:
