Dr. Mona El-Farra has recorded a short video as she has been trapped in Gaza due to the latest closure of the border, this time by the Egyptian authorities. Her national speaking tour of Australia is in jeopardy but we are hopeful she will be able to travel soon along with the thousands of other Palestinians who are waiting at the Rafah border crossing.
"This is the reality of being in the world's largest prison…"
Dr. Mona El-Farra is with the Red Crescent Society for the Gaza Strip. She is a member of the Advisory Committee of Gaza's Ark based in Gaza.
Gaza’s Ark is a project supporting Palestinians to rebuild a boat in Gaza, which will carry Palestinian products out to the world. With your support, Gaza's Ark will challenge the unjust blockade of civilians in Gaza. With your support, Palestinians will achieve their right to live with dignity.
We're very close to making an announcement about our boat! Meanwhile, we've made a video telling the story of how Gaza's Ark will challenge the blockade and show that global public opinion hasn't forgotten the struggle for Palestinian rights. It's just five minutes long, but we hope you'll agree it's very powerful. Please watch our video here and share with your networks.
A short video produced by friends in Gaza, Palestine, outlining the importance of the Gaza's Ark project.

Talk by Dr. Bill Dienst and Greta Berlin, co-editors of the book "Freedom Sailors: The Maiden Voyage of the Free Gaza movement and how we succeeded in spite of ourselves" recorded March 7, 2013 at the Common Good Cafe at University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle, WA. http://www.freedomsailors.com/
This video is a testimony to the unfair hardship created for the Palestinians of Gaza by the illegal Israeli blockade. Limits of 6 nautical miles to the fishing area drastically curtails the livelihood of fishers in Gaza as well as recreational activities. In addition, fishers daily risk their lives under the repressive actions of the Israeli navy. Palestinians as well as international observers in Gaza continually make appeals to end the blockade of Gaza. This video shows two Gaza's Ark activists giving statements: Mahfouz Kabariti, Palestinian spokesperson for Gaza's Ark in Gaza, and Michael Coleman, who is currently in Gaza following the development of Gaza's Ark project.

Newly released footage exposes Israeli attack on Members of Parliament
Former Canadian MP was aboard the Swedish Ship to Gaza at the time and is available for comment
Video footage smuggled by the passengers of the Swedish Ship to Gaza, the Estelle, has now been digitally restored and released for the first time. The video shows how Israeli masked commandos violently attacked and tasered peaceful civilian activists including Members of Parliament, refuting Israel's claims that attacks on civilian boats has been peaceful.
Canadian Jim Manly, former MP and retired United Church minister, was on Estelle when the ship was hijacked in international waters last October. He was jailed for four days in an Israeli prison. The press conference held upon his return to Vancouver can be viewed here.
