In a Democracy Now! exclusive, we bring you a sneak preview of previously unseen raw footage from the Mavi Marmara that will be formally released at a press conference at the United Nations later in the day. The footage shows the mood and the activities onboard the Mavi Marmara in the time leading up to the attack, and the immediate reaction of the passengers during the attack. We are joined by filmmaker and activist Iara Lee, of Cultures of Resistance, one of the few Americans on the Mavi Marmara ship. Her equipment was confiscated, but she managed to smuggle out an hourâs worth of footage.
