For ideas about how to raise awareness and information about activities in other cities, check either of these websites:

http://coalitionofwomen.org/home/english/articles/letter_1106

These websites also hold a fact sheet, sample letters to decision-makers, and contact information for Israeli political leaders.

Use the poster:

gaza_siegePosters in three languages (English, Arabic, and Hebrew) were contributed to the campaign by David Tartakover, Israel’s foremost political graphic designer. Feel free to print it out, duplicate, and hang in appropriate spaces.

One last note: Not a single Arab city is participating in the campaign. Weird? Not at all. Arab street demonstrated for ages and nothing changed. IMHO, its better if they don’t because if a single guy conduct any stupid thing, next hour, all mainstream media will be reporting his incident and ignore all others around the world and the reason behind these demonstration.
