FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Recently an article titled “We are looking for the next Rachel Corrie” appeared on several IndyMedia websites purporting to be an official ISM call for volunteers in Gaza. This article was not written or released by the International Solidarity Movement. Some versions of the article may have Huwaida Arraf, an ISM co-founder, falsely cited as the article’s author.
Official ISM appeals for volunteers, financial support, or material donations are made on the official ISM website, palsolidarity.org, and through the organization’s official accounts on social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter.
Because of the difficulty entering and leaving Gaza imposed by the continuing Israeli blockade and the potential for large scale assaults such as the Cast Lead operation, the International Solidarity Movement is currently only accepting human rights activists with significant previous experience in conflict zones to join our team in Gaza. For more information please contact the ISM media office.
