The International Action Center joins with the Gaza Freedom March, Al Awda
Palestine Right to Return Coalition NY and a number of Palestine solidarity and
human rights activists and organizations in calling for Emergency protests on
Monday and Tuesday in response to the brutal Israeli attack on 600 unarmed
Palestine Solidarity activists participating in the Free Gaza Flotilla.
The Free Gaza Flotilla, comprised of 6 ships bringing emergency supplies to
the Palestinians held under Israeli siege in Gaza , was attacked in
international waters by 14 Israeli ships, helicopters and masked Israeli
Sara Flounders, Co-Director of International Action Center, said this attack
and the brutal starvation siege of Gaza would not have been possible without
the billions of dollars in international aid that Washington gives to Israel
every year for more than 60 years. This latest massacre is an act of
international piracy. We must reinforce the efforts to Boycott, Divest and
Sanction this racist regime and demand an end to all U.S. aid to Israel .
AlAwda NYC points out that live footage from one of the boats reveals the
Israeli soldiers were heavily masked and carrying live ammunition which they
used on the unarmed passengers. None of the passengers or activists were armed.
Israel has continuously seized and refused to release emergency aid supplies to
the besieged people of Gaza.
