We, the ROR groups living in the land controlled by the Israeli government (Kasamba, Yasamba, and Hasamba), and active here against the occupation, capitalism, racism, animal exploitation and patriarchy in general, would like to send a call for solidarity.For the past two weeks the government here has been committing new-old war crimes against the people living in Gaza.
