AUC Students in Solidarity with Gaza


On Monday May 25th, a group of students from Cairo attempted to enter
the Gaza border to deliver aid. Thus far, all efforts to enter have
been stopped by Egyptian authorities.

The student delegation from Cairo is planning to meet with numerous
other delegations from around the globe. Each group has medical aid
and supplies, sports equipment for children and monetary donations.

The Egyptian authorities have been completely aware of everyone
attending and everything that we are carrying. All members attending
were told that they were given full clearance to enter Gaza. However,
now at the border, they suddenly refuse. We are being either blocked
from entering or even turned back at checkpoints before the border
itself.

Knowing that our efforts are supported worldwide, we are compelled to
reach out to all media outlets within and without Cairo, Egypt.
