Kevin Neish was on the Mavi Marmara of the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza in May 2010. Read his version of this story and why he is going to Gaza now on his blog.
VICTORIA – A Victoria man is packing for an upcoming trip to the Middle East.
Kevin Neish will be volunteering as what he calls a “cease fire monitor” in the unstable Gaza Strip.
He is a self-described Human Rights Activist and has been invited by the Palestinian Authority to enter the area on land.
He has tried to access Gaza twice in the past as part of the so-called Freedom Flotilla and he says it nearly cost him his life.
His five-week visit will be spent assisting Palestinian farmers, visiting vocational schools and watching for and documenting violations of the cease fire or attacks by either.
