Switch off your lights tonight 7pm -8 pm in solidarity with Palestinian families in Gaza.
Currently they only get electricity for 6 hours a day.Power off for 18 hours.
Today there is a global solidarity campaign highlighting this problem and the innocents living with a blockade on the Gaza strip and its ongoing power crisis.
The Palestinians in Gaza suffer from power shortages for long hours, that has been exasperated after the last Israel war.
Combined with poor electricity infrastructure, there is shortage of industrial fuel to generate power and technical issues with Gaza's power plant, linked with Israel's recent bombing campaign.
Daily life is a constant battle for the deprived residents of one of the worlds most densely populated places on earth.
