Help save Nora's home from settlers

To Ambassadors, UN Officials, and leaders of international human rights agencies in Jerusalem:

We, citizens from around the world, invite you to visit Grandma Nora's home in the Old City of Jerusalem. We urge you to condemn the Israeli government's policy of supporting settlers in evicting Grandma Nora's family and hundreds of other Palestinian families from their homes in Jerusalem. Your visit to Grandma Nora's home, and your calls to stop this eviction, will deter Israeli settlers and security forces from throwing her and her family to the street. Please pay her a visit! The address is: 33 Aqabat Al-Khalidiyya, Old City, Occupied East Jerusalem

Help save Nora's home from settlers

My name is Nora and I’m a grandmother living in the Muslim Quarter of the old City of Jerusalem. In days my children, grandchildren and I could lose our home to Israeli settlers and security forces. They are trying their hardest to push us out, and I’m writing to you today because I urgently need everyone’s help to stop them.

Back in April, Avaaz members in Palestine signed a petition demanding for this decision to be reversed, and public pressure is one of the main reasons the eviction has been postponed. But now officials are in their final stages of deciding, and if we show them that thousands of people are standing with my family, we could get them to drop the case entirely and let us stay in our home.

Tomorrow, we are marching across Jerusalemto the EU and US representatives urging them to intervene and help protect our land. Add your name to help save our home in Jerusalem -- we will have banners at the march showing the number of supporters behind us.
