Support Letter for the Freedom Flotilla

The Gaza Strip is the world’s largest open-air prison. Two million people
live in atrocious conditions under Israeli and Egyptian blockade by land, air
and sea.
Since 2008, many flotillas of Palestinian solidarity activists from around the
world have tried to break the siege, and all but the first were attacked by
the Israeli navy. In May 2010 nine unarmed passengers on board the Mavi
Marmara ship were killed by Israeli soldiers using firearms.
A new flotilla is now underway to Gaza, with three boats and about forty
passengers from fifteen countries. Among them is a member of the Union
Juive Française pour la Paix, a member organization of the European Jews
for Just Peace.
European Jews for Just Peace expresses its support for the right of the
people of Gaza for freedom. We support the flotilla and the immediate
ending of the siege.
Jews for Justice for Palestinians is a founder member of EJJP.
