The Freedom Flotilla ship #AlAwda (The Return) arrives in the port of Ajacio, Corsica on Thursday July 5, where it will remain moored at the quai d’honneur until Sunday July 8 at 8 pm.  This boat and other Flotilla vessels have been visiting many European ports over the last two months on their way to challenge the illegal and cruel Israeli-Egyptian blockade of Gaza in late July.

The Freedom Flotilla is sailing in 2018 for the right to a just future for Palestine. We challenge the blockade of Gaza and demand an end to our governments’ complicity with the blockade, which has created a humanitarian crisis, with civilians lacking clean water, electricity, and medical care. For more information about our mission and about the blockade of Gaza, see

Participants on board Al Awda include Zohar Chamberlain Regev, Israeli Spanish resident and Freedom Flotilla Coalition boat leader; Dr. Fauziah Mohd Hasan and Norsham Binti Abu Bakr, both from Malaysia; sailor and human rights advocate Charlie Andreasson from Sweden; Emilia Nacher Verdaguer, from Spain; Ann Wright, retired US Army Colonel and former State Department diplomat; and Awni Farhat, a Palestinian researcher and human rights worker from Gaza.

Local supporters greeted AlAwda Thursday evening at the quai d’honneur in the centre of the port of Ajaccio. There was be a dockside press conference Friday July 6 at 11 am. Solidarity activities will start each evening after 19h, including a musical evening with Jean Mattei Saturday July 7. Other political and community meetings are planned during the visit. Voir le communiqué de presse de Corsica-Palestine ici.
