Hudson Valley to Gaza: Report Back from the Freedom Flotilla II
Sunday, September 18 from 2-4:00 pm
Woodstock Town Hall
76 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY 12498
A number of local human rights activists participated in the recent Freedom Flotilla II, the attempt to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza. They will tell their story of the government harassment and sabotage that prevented this flotilla from reaching Gaza's shores. They will also describe the solidarity they found with the Greek people and with the international movement to overcome Israeli apartheid.
Presented by Middle East Crisis Response (www.mideastcrisis.org)
We had a good turnout for what was a fascinating look at this important attempt to break the siege of Gaza. The end of the presentation elicited many good ideas for future campaigns, including a way to show the occupation inspired art done by American and Palestinian children.
