KIWIS TO JOIN FREEDOM FLOTILLA TO CHALLENGE THE BLOCKADE OF GAZA
Kia Ora Gaza has been invited to send a New Zealand contingent to join the new international Freedom Flotilla to Gaza this month. We hope to be able to name the delegation very soon.
Conditions in Gaza are worse than ever. In March, UNRWA said “the effects of (Israel’s) occupation, blockade and recurring military campaigns have devastated not only Palestine refugee homes, lives and income, but also hope for a secure and dignified future.”
Separately it said “Gaza and its people are becoming more isolated. Families fear and worry that in addition to the devastated economy and stalled political environment, the future of their children is also under siege.”
The Freedom Flotilla III will comprise delegations from about 20 countries on at least three ships. The first ship, the Marianne, departed from Sweden and has already reached the Mediterranean sea to link up with the other boats. YOU CAN FOLLOW PROGRESS ON OUR FACEBOOK OR WEBSITE: kiaoragaza.net
You can support the Kiwi delegation by sending a solidarity message and a donation to our Freedom Flotilla Appeal – see how to donate below.
