Public Meeting to welcome the crew from the boat “Freedom” to Brighton, to convey the message of solidarity at the heart of the Flotilla’s journey, and to raise awareness about the 11-year illegal blockade of Gaza. We’ll hear from the captain and crew of “Freedom”, from politicians, activists, artists and other public figures, and from members of the Flotilla Coalition. It should be a memorable evening!
Brighton and Hove Palestine Solidarity Campaign, together with the International Freedom Flotilla Coalition, are very pleased to announce that Brighton will be hosting one of the boats sailing from Scandinavia to Gaza this summer.
The boat “Freedom” is scheduled to arrive in Brighton UK on Tuesday 5 June and will stay for three nights, departing for its onward voyage to Gaza on Friday 8 June.
“Freedom” is one of four boats taking part in the Flotilla, and the only one being brought into English territorial waters. This will give people in Britain an opportunity to show their support for the Palestinian people of Gaza, and to send a message to the British Government to end its complicity in the ongoing illegal blockade.
During their stay in Brighton, activists and crew from “Freedom” will meet with politicians, campaigners and prominent local people, to convey the message of solidarity at the heart of the Flotilla’s journey and to raise awareness about the 11-year illegal blockade of Gaza.
There will be a big welcoming event at Brighton Marina as “Freedom” sails into Brighton on Tuesday 5th June. Details (including timings) will be posted on our website as they are confirmed.
