Monday 25 June 2007
Dear community members,
In 4 days time, the SZCV, together with the Melbourne community, will embark on a week of campaigning to highlight the fact that Israeli soldiers Gilad Shalit, Eldad Regev and Ehud (Udi) Goldwasser are still being held captive by terrorists, almost 1 year after being kidnapped from sovereign Israeli soil Gilad from Israels border with Palestinian-controlled Gaza, and Udi and Eldad from the northern Lebanese border.
The week will culminate in a rally at Melbournes GPO (cnr Bourke and Elizabeth Streets) on Monday June 25 from 12.30 to 2pm. The rally has been planned to coincide with the day, 1 long year ago, that Gilad Shalit was kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists. Ehud (Udi) Goldwasser and Eldad Regev were kidnapped by Hizbollah terrorists just 18 days later, sparking the month-long Second Lebanon war.
The Solidarity Rally is an initiative of SZC youth and will be led by Victorias Zionist youth movements and AUJS, with the aim of engaging all segments of the community in the week-long campaign lead up to the event on June 25.
Show your support at the rally on Monday June 25 for Gilad, Ehud (Udi) and Eldad.
The Blue Ribbon campaign initiated by SZC in response to the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit on June 25, 2006 is continuing. Lengths of blue ribbon have been kindly donated by Spotlight. Single ribbons are available from the Beth Weizmann reception. Please contact the SZC if you would like a particular quantity for your organization (safety pins are also provided).
As part of our campaign week to raise awareness throughout the community, we are utilising the 1 Year blue ribbon logo attached (see below). It is easy to use: just save it and insert it as a picture in your emails, together with your signature, etc. By doing so, you will provide a simple and effective reminder of the 3 young men still in captivity.
