Camp Hope Shifts Gears to Middle East Peace

January 14, 2009

Chicago, IL – As the Camp Hope vigil near President-elect Barack Obama's Chicago home continues, peace and social justice activists are shifting gears today to focus on the fighting in Gaza. An all-day vigil will be held in remembrance of those killed and in hopes for a possible cease-fire.

Miryam Rashid with the American Friends Service Committee says activists are calling on Obama to find a peaceful solution.

"There is hope that people will speak up and appeal to his morality to try to get to a political resolution so we that we don't have to deal with these humanitarian crises over and over again."

Rashid adds that a solution is needed that goes beyond the current fighting.

"If you don't get to addressing the political solutions and working for a resolution that has some semblance of justice, these kinds of crises will continue to happen and we'll just have to keep dealing with them."

The President-elect has been quiet on the Gaza issue, saying two administrations cannot operate simultaneously.

Community members are invited to write on a mural of hope during the vigil and record a video message that will be sent to the people of Gaza.

Camp Hope is a three-week pre-inauguration vigil intended to hold Obama to his campaign promises.
