Sail in Solidarity

by ray goodlass

I’ve booked for the Parliamentary Friends of Palestine ‘Sail in Solidarity’ Sydney Harbour cruise on 2 May to raise funds for a boat to break Israeli blockade of Gaza. The aim is to fund the re-building of a boat to take Palestinian goods through the Israeli blockade, which has cut off all trade between Gaza and the outside world, with the result that 80% of Gaza’s population is now dependent on UN aid. It is being dubbed ‘Gaza’s Ark’. As well as having Palestinian goods on board it will have Palestinians and Internationals on board as it tries to break the blockade. It is good to be doing something else to help bring about a Just Peace, however small.
