I just sent this to the email list but it's held in a moderationqueue

This is what we said in 2009 when Gaza's civilians were being bombed by the occupying power. http://compsy.org.uk/Position%20statements%20and%20media%20releases...

It's happening again.

More than 100 dead.

Hospitals damaged.

Families cowering in fear.

Many many homeless.

And the blockade means a shortage of medicines and other vital supplies.

Warships shelling Gaza and rockets landing without warning.

80% of Gaza's population are refugees or their descendants.

Confined in a small area - probably the most crowded on earth.

There are no smart bombs - always collateral damage.

The Nakba goes on.

Beyond the deaths and wounds, imagine the psychological damage.

BBC as usual giving biased reporting. Don't believe me - read this from the mainstream Independent http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/the-true-gaza-backstory-that-th...

Are community psychologists up for making another statement and getting maximum publicity and traction for it?

Hey Mark

Definitely yes!

My friend works at Christian aid on the Gaza programmes and is willing to give a talk too if people are interested... which will include ways of getting involved.

Thanks for bringing this up. I will sign for sure.
