Life inside ‘freedom flotilla’ boat: the journey to Gaza

ABOARD THE MARIANNE BOAT

In a boat sailing in the Atlantic, I am one of nine people united around the same cause: lifting the nine-year-long, inhuman Israeli siege on Gaza.

This boat, a fishing vessel capable of carrying only so much aid, aims to punch above its weight and puncture a hole in this blockade that chokes the lifeline to 1.8 million people.

And it is headed where tragedy hit a similar boat in 2010, when Israeli commandoes preyed upon Mavi Marmara in international waters, a Turkish ship that shared the goal of breaking this vicious circle that has enveloped Gaza.

Now it is us, this team of nine, who seek to carry the torch.
