Gaza Crisis: Stop the ship - Action needed now for an International Arms Embargo

Amnesty International UK AIUK wrote:
Amnesty has learnt that a German owned cargo ship, the Wehr Elbe, carrying huge amounts of weaponry from the U.S - possibly including controversial white phosphorous - has been heading for the Israeli port of Ashdod.

There are breaking news reports that the ship has been suspended after pressure from Amnesty International. At the time of writing the status of the shipment is unclear, but its deadly cargo remains on board. We must maintain pressure to prevent the arms from being unloaded and used to fuel the conflict in Gaza.

More munitions will only fuel further military aggression in Gaza. For the sake of civilians in Gaza and Israel, we need to prevent this deadly shipment from reaching its final destination.

Amnesty is urging Foreign Secretary David Miliband to increase international pressure to prevent this ship with its “vast consignment” of weapons docking anywhere in Israel. Further, we are calling on the UN Security Council for an immediate arms embargo on all parties involved in the bloody conflict in Gaza.

Stop civilian bloodshed in Gaza and Israel - join our urgent call for a full arms embargo on all parties involved in the Gaza conflict - this ship must be stopped

Join Amnesty International UK / AIUK and send a letter to David Miliband calling for a withdrawal of this ship of death: ... tionID=558
