Bethlehem, 7 Rabiul Awwal 1436/29 December 2014 (MINA)– Activities in solidarity with the Gaza Strip called for by the European Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza were launched in several European cities on Saturday (27/12) to mark the sixth anniversary of the Israeli offensive on Gaza in 2008-2009.

The group said in a statement on Saturday that the campaign was launched in London, Berlin, and Granada in solidarity with those under siege in the Gaza Strip as well as demanding the opening of the Rafah crossing and the reconstruction of Gaza.

The campaign also calls for Israel to allow Gazans to fulfill their right to have a seaport connecting them with the rest of the world, which Israel denies them, Ma’an News Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

Activities were also held in Vienna, Austria and Hamburg, Germany on Thursday (25/12) and Friday (26/12) condemning the Israeli siege on Gaza.

The electronic European campaign also launched on Saturday using the hashtags #OpenGazaPort, #GazaUnderRubble and #OpenRafahBorder in seven languages. (T/P010/P3)
