Global web activist organization Avaaz has launched an online mass petition to convince the cabinet to pass Hadash MK Dov Henin’s comprehensive Dead Sea rehabilitation bill during a second vote on the project that may occur this Sunday.

The bill, which initially was rejected in an 8-7 vote a month ago, aims to preserve the Dead Sea and its natural resources for future generations, curb plunging water levels in the northern basin and create a new management system for mineral extraction in the area. It was originally drafted by members of Adam Teva V’Din (Israel Union for Environmental Defense).

At the time of publication, the campaign had attracted 2,464 signatures, and can be accessed here.
