Campaign to get Rod & the Pea out of Gaza.

The Pea has been returned to Rod by the Palestinians and today he tried to leave at Rafah only to be turned back by the Egyptians. He has one more shot at it tomorrow (Friday) but is worried he may have to leave on foot.

The minibus is currently filled with artwork by Palestinian schoolchildren to be displayed in Brussels and then auctioned in the UK to raise funds. Frances has found local schools to be involved.

Please can everyone contact the Egyptian Embassy to add weight to the campaign that he be allowed to leave. Time is short - the crossing at Rafah opens up at 1pm (11am UK) tomorrow. Ask everyone you know to send an email or phone call and if you know anyone with influence please get them to do what they can.
