Children rally for Flotilla in Gaza port

2 July 2011 | International Solidarity Movement, Gaza

Dozens of children from the Beit Hanoun Local Initiative’s summer camp, “Vittorio Arrigoni – Stay Human,” rallied in the port of Gaza today to support Freedom Flotilla – Stay Human, and demand free passage and international protection for it.

They were joined by Palestinian and international supporters, including the International Solidarity Movement – 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.

“We call this action in the sea a human message, a message for the people who carry the idea of breaking the siege of Gaza,” said Beit Hanoun Local Initiative coordinator Saber Al Zaaneen. “We are very sorry to hear of obstructions by the Greek government, and stand with Flotilla participants against them.”
