RESPONSE NETWORK ***STOP THE WALL CAMPAIGN ***
INITIATIVE FROM THE
This is an invitation to participate in a new Response Network being
organized by the Palestine Solidarity Committee of Seattle. The purpose of
the Response Network is to provide opportunities regularly for participants
to take action on important issues related to Palestinian human rights. The
network will allow
concerned citizens from all over
in a coordinated way
Israel/Palestine and the occupation.
We believe that those of us who oppose the
Israeli occupation of
order to influence
working more effectively for justice for
are confident that we can increase the possibility for a broader peace
If you are ready to take part in this initiative, please sign on by
responding to us with as much of the following information as you wish to
share: your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. To
make the response network function via e-mail, at the very least we need
your e-mail address. But the more of this information you provide for us,
the more we will be able to include you in various activities such as
meetings with political officials or with representatives of the media.
When the Response Network is activated, you will receive action bulletins
from us regarding the most urgent issues once or twice a month. We will call
your attention to an issue, suggest talking points, and provide you with the
contact information for the appropriate government official or major media
outlet. At that time, we hope that you will participate by contacting your
representative or news editor, as the case may be. We also encourage you to
send us copies of your postings so that we may learn from your work -- and
so that we can keep track of the effectiveness of the project.
As we develop our technical capabilities, our action bulletins will be
posted and archived on the Response Network section of our web site (see
below), with information about the volume of response and the effectiveness
of the project. In this way, we hope to make a voice for peace and justice
this region's media!
To sign up and receive action alerts, please write to us at
email@example.com. If you have questions, suggestions or
requests for us, please let us know. Also, we would very much appreciate your
help in forwarding this letter to other potential participants in this response

Although Rachel Corrie’s life was cut short, many of us were inspired by her
and have resolved to carry out her project. Beginning with a small core
group, we have steadily expanded since our formation last Spring. A number of our
members have gone to live in Rafah, building connections with people and
institutions there. We have begun a Fair Trade exchange for Palestinian artwork
through the Union of Palestinian Women, we support a Center for Disabled
Persons, we have sponsored cultural exchanges, and we offer translation between
English and Arabic for our pen-pal program. You can find out more about us, or
contact us, through our website at http://www.orscp.org/. (360) 867-0290 or via
