Dear Friends,

As the awful civilian death toll rises above 1000 in Lebanon and
Israel, people around the world are seeking a place to voice their
frustration and concern. Over the last 4 days, 200,000 people from
148 countries have signed the ceasefire petition. At this rate, we
could soon be the largest global online petition in history.

The pressure is working. The global outcry over this crisis has
pushed the Ambassadors to the UN Security Council to work around the
clock to achieve an immediate  ceasefire.

The latest word is that the Council may be close to a final vote
today or tomorrow, but we've been this close before and negotiations
have fallen apart. We need more pressure now to close the deal.

Please forward this email on, spread the word to your friends,
family and colleagues, post a link on your blog, bring up the
campaign in discussions, and urgently encourage people around you to
join this global wave of protest by signing up at the link below:


The pressure is working. Let's ratchet it up.

With hope,

Ricken Patel, Ceasefire Campaign
