NDP MP Alex Atamanenko has taken a conscientious decision to support the Canadian Boat to Gaza's efforts to help the 1.5 million Palestinians of Gaza who have been living for years in an open air prison and to end the inhumane and illegal blockade of Gaza.
Tuesday's National Post carried a vicious smear article against both the Boat to Gaza and Alex Atamanenko. Please write to or call Jack Layton, Paul Dewar and other members of the NDP caucus NOW, tell them you support the Canadian Boat to Gaza and ask them to support it as well.
It is VERY important to do this NOW to counter media and lobbyist pressure. They need to hear from us (and our friends and families) NOW!
