Boundary Peace Initiative Endorses Canadian Boat to Gaza and Freedom Flotilla Coalition

The Boundary Peace Initiative is pleased to give our support and endorsement to the Canadian Boat to Gaza and Freedom Flotilla Coalition for the 2018 sailing to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip.  The occupation by Israel of Palestine has imprisoned millions of people for much too long and must end.  We are grateful for the work of the caring people of both these groups to bring attention to the plight of Palestinians; especially those living in the longest running open air prison in the world in Gaza. Thank you for the opportunity to add our voice to this action from our Interior of British Columbia.  


For Our Earth Coalition Endorsement to the Canadian Boat to Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla Coalition 2018 Action

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Our Earth Coalition, based in the Kootenay/Boundary region of British Columbia is pleased to add our endorsement and support for the 2018 sailing to break the Blockade of Gaza.  We are grateful to all those who are working on this issue for your dedication and courage to bring to the world’s attention not only the blockade but the occupation of Palestine and the imprisonment of the Palestinian people.  We wish you success in reaching a port in Gaza under your own steam and not under arrest by Israel.  

Thank you.

In Universal Kinship and Loving Peace,

On behalf of the For Our Earth Coalition

Support and Endorsement of Canadian Boat to Gaza and Freedom Flotilla Coalition Sailing 2018

I would like to thank all those involved in the Canadian Boat to Gaza  and to wish them well in this important mission.  It is important to continue to bring attention to this illegal blockade.  It is my hope that the Israeli authorities will welcome the Freedom Flotilla mission and assist with the distribution of supplies to the Palestinian people.  I would also like to encourage the Government of Canada to offer support to those courageous Canadians taking part in this important endeavor.

“Ending the blockade and human suffering in Gaza is an urgent human rights issue that must concern us all. Having visited Gaza in 2009 we know first hand the impact of the blockade on civil society. The International Flotilla in 2018 strives to bring attention to the deteriorating situation. We support the aims for peace and justice for the people of Gaza”.
