Gaza has been under Israeli blockade for the past decade during which Israel has also launched countless attacks against the besieged population, turning life into a nightmare and a continuous struggle. Through Freedom Flotillas and other naval missions we have brought international attention to their suffering and their resistance.
The Women's Boat to Gaza (WBG) seeks not only to challenge the Israeli blockade but to also show solidarity and bring a message of hope to the Palestinian people. With the support of women, men, non-governmental organizations and civil society groups, and from women's collectives and events, we will make this happen. We will purchase a boat, have an all woman crew and women passengers from around the world. We intend to sail in summer or fall of 2016--the date depending on fundraising to purchase the boat.
FFC is composed of civil society organizations and initiatives from many countries. We have been challenging the illegal and inhuman Israeli blockade of Gaza for years and are committed to continue the struggle until the blockade is unconditionally lifted and the Palestinian people everywhere regain their full rights.
