Alice Walker supports Gaza’s Ark

Pulitzer Prize winning author Alice Walker commented regarding Gaza's Ark: "What, among the many things I love about humans, is my favorite? That they don’t give up. Second, that they’re creative, stubborn, often very funny. Now these particular humans want to build a boat inside Gaza, pack it with stuff made by Gazans, and sail it out into the world, carrying exports for trade! Truly, with huevos y ovarios* of this magnitude, we (humanity) will never be defeated."

Alice Walker

*Having "huevos" is a traditional Hispanic way of saying someone, (usually a man) has "balls" i.e. guts or courage. This more recent usage (having "balls" & ovaries) tries to balance the gender reference to be more inclusive.
