A human chain was formed in Switzerland on Saturday that ended at the Egyptian embassy in Bern and handed the embassy staff a protest note against the continued closure of the Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip.

Anwar Al-Gharbi, the chairman of  Rights For All society in Switzerland, said in a press release on Saturday that the human chain started from the Place de la Monnaie – Bel Air towards the Egyptian embassy.

He asked the Egyptian presidency, government and parliament to immediately lift the siege on the Strip through opening the Rafah terminal to enable the Palestinians to secure their basic supplies.

He added that another human chain and a massive rally would be organized next Saturday also in Bern to denounce the siege and to hand other protest notes to the Egyptian and Israeli embassies.

Gharbi noted that a media tent concerning the conditions of Palestinian farmers in the Gaza Strip had been pitched at Plainpalais.
