Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
For nearly seven years, Gaza has been under siege.
Its 1.8 million inhabitants have been denied their rights to move and trade freely.
Farmers are blocked from farming their land. Fishermen have their lives threatened
and their property confiscated. And, crucially, Palestinian producers have been blocked
from exporting their goods. Gaza’s economy has been devastated.
In the short run, aid is necessary but, in the long run, aid is not the answer.
Freedom is the answer. That’s why we’ve been working on Gaza’s Ark,
an international initiative to challenge the blockade politically by exporting
Palestinian goods through the port of Gaza.
Gaza’s Ark is a refurbished fishing boat that will soon sail from Gaza carrying
Palestinian export goods. Like other boats that have attempted to break the
blockade, Gaza’s Ark will face the danger of interception by Israeli forces.
