Gaza Freedom Flotilla–Join US to Break the Illegal Israeli Blockade of Gaza!!! For the Children of Gaza!!
December 1, 2019. Rotterdam, Netherlands
- To challenge and end the illegal and inhuman Israeli blockade of Gaza
- To restore the rights of children and youth in Gaza, for life, security and freedom of movement.
For more than five years the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has been warning the world that Gaza could become uninhabitable
by 2020 if the blockade does not end. Basic human rights of Palestinians in Gaza are violated daily by the Israeli-imposed blockade, including the right to adequate housing, the right to education, the right to healthcare, the right to clean water and food, and in particular the right to freedom of movement.
Civil society organizations from around the world have combined to challenge the blockade since 2008, when Free Gaza boats managed to arrive in Gaza and leave again peacefully. In all, more than 35 boats have sailed to challenge the blockade.
May 2020 will mark 10 years since the attack by Israeli forces on boats including the
Mavi Marmara, where 10 people were killed and 56 others seriously wounded.
The documentary film The Truth: Lost at Sea includes on board footage.
Since 2010 we have sailed as the Freedom Flotilla Coalition: international civil society organizations united for human rights and dedicated to challenging the blockade of Gaza through nonviolent direct action.
“The children of Gaza deserve the same rights as children in every other country of the world,” comments Ann Wright of the US Boat to Gaza. “They are more than a million, more than half of the population of Gaza, and they are being deprived of the right to a just future because of the illegal blockade and ongoing military attacks on occupied Gaza by Israel, with the complicity of our governments.”

2020 will be the tenth anniversary of the brutal Israeli attack on the 2010 Gaza Freedom Flotilla where Israeli commandos executed ten passengers and wounded more than fifty on the Mavi Marmara, and attacked passengers on the five other boats in the Flotilla which were sailing together to break the illegal blockade of Gaza.
