End the siege of Gaza. Support the Canadian boat.
From The Star :
"32 Canadians are expected to join the international flotilla comprising 10 boats and approximately 1,000 activists taking medical, school and construction supplies to Gaza.Peace activist and former Iraq hostage James Loney says : "Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a responsibility to protect Canadian citizens who are unarmed and on a peaceful mission."
The supplies are the practical facet of the convoy — organizers have said it’s a symbolic journey to draw the world’s attention to Gaza.
The Canadian vessel has been named Tahrir — after Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt where the uprising began against ousted president Hosni Mubarak."
Steve doesn't actually have much of a record backing Canadian citizens who are unarmed and on a peaceful mission over attacks from Israel, or even asking any awkward questions about it.
In July 2006, a UN observer post in Lebanon contacted Israeli troops 10 times in six hours to stop shelling them. The Israeli officer promised after each call to have the bombing stopped but finally a direct hit took out the post, killing four UN observers including Canadian Forces Major Paeta Hess-von Kruedener.
The UN's Kofi Annan called the attack "deliberate"; Steve called it "measured".
Alice Walker : "This is the Freedom Ride of this era - to get on this boat, make it to Gaza, to join our stories to their stories, to know that these oppressions can be ended."
