Largest Passenger Boat Joins FlotillaThe Egyptian Gazette reports that a large passenger boat will join the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. This is the boat that FPM helped to purchase, along with the other partners in the International Committee to Break the Siege of Gaza, and which will be carrying the FPM delegation of U.S. citizens, along with participants from other nations.
Our contribution to the purchase has nearly depleted our account, and we have yet to purchase our satellite phone. We also expect Israel to deport us to New York, in which case all of our delegates will need tickets home and reimbursement for loss of possessions. We therefore appeal to you for donations to support these and other expenses. Please click here to help.
