Dignité-Al Karama sailing to Gaza

Aletho News – 18.07.11

The Dignité-Al Karama crew, which had told Greek authorities that their destination was the Egyptian port of Alexandria, have decided instead to sail towards Gaza after a long debate.

The French yacht has been the only one that succeeded in evading the Greek Authority’s decision to prevent the ships from leaving their shores. Out of the 300 activists and dozen ships that made up the Freedom Flotilla II only ten activists and one small ship is left.

The passengers see themselves as “representatives of the whole Freedom Flotilla II – Stay Human”. Among them, are representatives of the Canadian, French, Greek and Swedish Boats to Gaza, and also renowned Israeli journalist Amira Hass, reporting for Haaretz.

They view their voyage as “a message to the Israeli government, to the international community and to the besieged people of Gaza: The Canadian Boat to Gaza & Freedom Flotilla II are not giving up, until the inhumane and illegitimate blockade of Gaza is lifted. Gaza, we are coming!”
