It's Time To End The Illegal Israeli Blockade Of Gaza.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD. THESE ARE OUR FELLOW VILLAGERS.
OUR PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS
— FFC Coalition Members
Roger Waters of Pink Floyd speaking in 2018 about the Freedom Flotilla’s mission.
THE FREEDOM FLOTILLA
Peace activists are uniting from around the world
Their anchors are hoisted, their sails unfurled.
From Sweden to Gaza their course will be
To break the blockade and let the oppressed be free.
For two months they will travel across open seas,
Facing storms on the ocean and danger unforeseen.
May camaraderie sustain them, as their journey unfolds,
Missing loved ones at home, their lives put on hold.
If only the world could see through their eyes
The pain and the suffering and all of the lies.
Gaza’s wells have been destroyed, they live without light
Unarmed children are murdered for protesting their plight.
These courageous souls fill my heart with great pride,
I am with them in spirit; proud to stand by their side.
Safe travels dear friends – may your mission succeed
Giving hope for a future – to those in great need.
If those in power were not filled with such greed,
A better world we would have – with no one in need.
If they possessed your kindness; your compassion for mankind
Humanity would be restored; peace on earth we would find.
May these kindred spirits sail peacefully through the night
With calm seas, a steady breeze – and the moon giving light.
I wish them fond memories of scenic ports and new friends,
Welcomed home by open arms when this amazing journey ends.
