Quick Action from the American Friends Service Committee
Call on Congress:
Ask for an end to movement restrictions in the occupied Palestinian territory.
"Control of Palestinian movement has been a feature of the Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territory since its inception in 1967. However, over the last 14 years the system of movement controls used by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territory has become increasingly institutionalized and restrictive with severe adverse affects. This is a severe violation of a very basic human right."
