The Women’s Boat to Gaza is an exciting new initiative of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition. Help us highlight the undeniable contributions and indomitable spirit of Palestinian women who have been central within the Palestinian struggle in Gaza, the West Bank, inside the Green Line, and in the Diaspora. Support the women organizers, passengers and crew from around the world to sail to break the siege.
Gaza has been under Israeli blockade for the past decade during which time Israel has launched countless attacks against the besieged population, turning life into a nightmare and a continuous struggle. The physical wars have not only invaded the economy, markets and the land of Gaza, but have raided and assaulted homes, families, schools and museums, destroying civilization, heritage, culture, memory and hopes.
Through Freedom Flotillas and other naval missions we have protested the passivity and complicity of the international community while calling for solidarity of civil society with the Palestinian resistance and a coherent response from western governments.
The Women’s Boat to Gaza seeks to challenge the Israeli blockade, to show solidarity, and to bring a message of hope to the Palestinian people. With the support of women, men, non-governmental organizations, civil society, and from women’s collectives and events around the world, we will make this happen.
The Freedom Flotilla Coalition is composed of civil society organizations and initiatives from many countries. We have been challenging the illegal and inhumane Israeli blockade of Gaza for years and are committed to continue the struggle until the blockade is unconditionally lifted and the Palestinian people everywhere regain their full rights.
We intend to officially launch this exciting project across the world on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2016 and we would like you to join us!
We are calling for active participation of individuals and groups in this new campaign.
