Rabbi Soetendorp issued the following call in support of Avaaz and their action to support the democratic activists in the Middle East with black-out proof information technology:

How can we, concerned citizens, reach out and support our neighbours in Libya, how can we help safeguard their lives? I applaud Avaaz in their efforts to help breakdown the blockade of information. Let our consternation and concern reach our representatives in government and parliament. Let us build a wave of indignation. The bloobath must stop! Reason and humanity must prevail!"

Please donate to Avaaz to help break down the information blockade in Libya, Baharain, Yemen and other countries in the Middle East. Find more information here.
