Egyptian Blockade of Gaza: The March for Liberation Coming February 26

Is there any sane, right-minded person who supports the blatant and brutal collective punishment of the people of Gaza? So why would it carry on? There is only one reason, because we allow it. I say we carry on with what the people of Egypt started, they got rid of the dictator, let us, people of conscience, once and for all smash to pieces the abominable Egyptian blockade of Gaza.

On the verge of Cast Lead II, a look back

Today our team in Gaza met the Awaja family from Thabat. There were nine members of this family, seven children aged 1 to 12 years old, but one son was murdered during Operation Cast Lead (2008-2009), so seven children is now six.

Free Gaza Mission Vows Escalation of Struggle Against Israel

We Americans are all Palestinians. From the two small boats that landed on August 23, 2008, we grew to six ships in the last flotilla, and will have nine to twelve in the flotilla this fall as we go back to Gaza. To borrow from Dr. King who gave a beautiful anthem for justice in Washington D.C., the Free Gaza movement knows that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. Let us see the day when we can say: "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
