International Solidarity Movement – Â Â GazaÂ Â – 2 July 2011
Dozens of children from the Beit Hanoun Local Initiativeâs summer camp, âVittorio Arrigoni â Stay Human,â rallied in the port of Gaza today to support Freedom Flotilla â Stay Human, and demand free passage and international protection for it.
They were joined by Palestinian and international supporters, including the International Solidarity Movement â Gaza Strip. After gathering on the pier, they took to the sea in boats, decorated with the flags of countries participating in the Flotilla, for a spirited rally in the harbor.
âWe call this action in the sea a human message, a message for the people who carry the idea of breaking the siege of Gaza,â said Beit Hanoun Local Initiative coordinator Saber Al Zaaneen. âWe are very sorry to hear of obstructions by the Greek government, and stand with Flotilla participants against them.â
