Galloway announces new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza
Speaking at a demonstration in London which organisers estimated to be more than 20,000 strong, George Galloway announced new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza.
“After extensive discussion in Istanbul,” said Galloway, “I can announce that a land convoy will leave Britain shortly after the end of Ramadan in September and travel through Europe, down through Turkey and Syria into Jordan. We will ask the Egyptian government then to ensure passage from the port of Aqaba to Rafah and into Gaza.
“At exactly the same time a flotilla of boats will be leaving to tour the countries of the Mediterranean before heading for Gaza.
“These combined sea and land convoys will be co-ordinated by Viva Palestina with other organisations in Britain and with our friends throughout the Middle East and in Turkey.”
