The Free Gaza Flotilla, comprised of 6 ships bringing emergency supplies
to the Palestinians held under Israeli siege in Gaza , was attacked in
international waters by 14 Israeli ships, helicopters and masked Israeli
Congress of Arab American Organizations and Palestine Cultural Office in
cooperation with area peace groups urge you to participate in a
emergency response. Please join the rally against the Israeli murderous
assault on the Freedom Flotilla carrying 600 unarmed civilians from 40
nations, in the high seas and in international waters. Reports indicate
at least 10 peace activists killed, 50 inured. All boats and peace
activists have been attacked then kidnapped by Israeli Navy boats and
led to the Israeli port of Esdoud on the Mediterranean. Among those
attacked are US peace activists including former Ambassador Edward L.
Peck and Irish Nobel Laureate Maireed McGuire.
On Wednesday, join the Congress of Arab American Organizations, the
Palestine Cultural Office, the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War

Protest and Rally against Israeli Murders and Piracy
4 PM, Wednesday, June 2, 2010
McNamara Federal Building
477 Michigan Ave., Detroit
for info: 313-671-3715
Sara Flounders, Co-Director of International Action Center, said "This
attack and the brutal starvation siege of Gaza would not have been
possible without the billions of dollars in international aid that
Washington gives to Israel every year for more than 60 years. This
latest massacre is an act of international piracy. We must reinforce the
efforts to Boycott, Divest and Sanction this racist regime and demand an
end to all U.S. aid to Israel .
AlAwda NYC points out that live footage from one of the boats reveals
the Israeli soldiers were heavily masked and carrying live ammunition
which they used on the unarmed passengers. None of the passengers or
activists were armed. Israel has continuously seized and refused to
release emergency aid supplies to the besieged people of Gaza.
Long Live Palestine!
