All four Freedom Flotilla boats arrive today in Palermo. Al Awda (The Return), Freedom, Mairead and Falestine are reunited as of Monday July 16, after more than two months sailing from Scandinavia to Sicily. They have traveled over 4000 nautical miles and visited over 15 European ports.
We are delighted to be welcomed for three days of solidarity events with our local hosts (Palermo capitale di solidarietà con la Palestina) prior to departure towards Gaza on Thursday July 19. Our arrival Monday coincides with the arrival of the Caravana Abriendo Fronteras (Opening Border Caravan, in support of refugee rights) in Palermo.
Stay tuned for photos and video!
