ACTIONS

Associate Professor Haidar Eid on December 27, 2020

Associate professor Haidar Eid in Gaza commemorates December 27, 2008 when Israel attacked the civilian population it is supposed to defend. During this massacre Israeli forces killed approximately 1400 Palestinians in contrast to 13 Israeli casualties. Dr. Eid reminds people of conscience across the world that we all have to defend human rights because our governments do not. Palestine is the perfect example of this relinquishment of responsibility—refugees have been prevented from returning for over seventy years and the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza continue after more than fifty years. He calls on all to support activism such as BDS and the Freedom Flotilla to bring freedom to Palestinians.

Recommended Covid-19 Actions For Gaza

With the Coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Boat to Gaza is recommending our friends help out the people of Gaza since they not only face the virus like the rest of us; they also face it under a blockade and occupation.  Here are things you can do:

Be A Part Of The 2019 Freedom Flotilla For Gaza !

The Freedom Flotilla For Gaza is planning events in the U.S. and Canada this summer.  Our objectives are to raise awareness in our communities about the situation in Gaza and provide hope to people in Gaza.  At the same time we are designing these events to be great for the whole family.

Join us at events in:

  • Spokane, WA: August 17: 3-5pm.
    See pictures of the Spokane event!
    Veterans for Peace convention. Meet at the lobby of the Doubletree Inn.  Walk with us from the hotel in A HUMAN BOAT (inside fabric designed to look like a boat) to the River walk where we will have a vigil for the victims of Israeli attacks on Gaza and the effects of the 10 year naval and land blockade of Gaza by the Government of Israel plus curtailing water and electricity to make Gaza uninhabitable by 2020 according to the United Nations. Since 2008, the Freedom Flotilla movement has sent 35 ships attempting to break Israel’s illegal, US-backed brutal military blockade of Gaza that has denied 2 million people –half of them children — access to food, clean water, fuel, medicine, employment and basic human dignity for 13 years. Join this flotilla action that educates our U.S. citizens about the crushing economic blockade as well as airstrikes, arrests, torture, and myriad human rights violations the Israeli government perpetrates on the people of Gaza.
