Dublin – ISTG Demo: End the Siege of Gaza – Let the Flotilla Go!
The Irish Ship To Gaza campaign have organised a demonstration for Saturday 9th July, beginning at 12pm at the Central Bank Plaza, which will march to both the Greek and Israeli Embassies calling for an end to the siege of Gaza and for the Greek government to let the Flotilla go.
Under US and Israeli pressure and diplomatic influence, the Greek government have agreed to become complicit in the illegal siege of Gaza. They have refused to allow the remaining boats from “Freedom Flotilla 2 – Stay Human” to sail on their humanitarian mission to Gaza – even forcing both the US and Canadian ships back to port at gunpoint. This comes on top of the sabotage of both the Irish and Scandinavian-Greek boats as they were docked 100s of miles from each other.
