In 2012, the UN predicted that Gaza was on track to become “unliveable” by 2020. In 2017, the UN acknowledged that the “unliveability” threshold had already been passed. Despite this, “somehow, families in Gaza find ways to ‘make do’.”
In Spring 2020, the next Freedom Flotilla will sail again to challenge the 12 year, illegal and inhuman Israeli blockade imposed on more than 2 million Palestinian people in Gaza – more than half of whom are children.
Partners in the Freedom Flotilla Coalition are mobilizing support for their participation in the Flotilla and you can get involved by contacting your nearest partner listed here.
The people of Gaza do not give up and neither do we. There are 1.4 million young people in Gaza who deserve a better future.
Watch this video by the Israeli NGO Gisha.
Across the world our partners and other friends have been organizing local events to raise
awareness about the continued blockade and also to raise funds to finance the purchase of boats and supplies.
Here are some photos and links to events held in the US, Spain, Sweden and Australia.
For the children in Gaza and for respect of human rights we will sail again until Palestine is free.
