Julie Webb-Pullman Gaza Exclusive - Vox Pops On The Flotilla

Julie Webb-Pullman – Vox Pops From Gaza On The Flotilla

This evening on the Gaza beach (where everyone goes to cool down - rich and poor, men and women, singles and families) I asked several people what importance they attach to the upcoming flotilla. Here are their responses, some in English, some in Arabic with English translations. All are unanimous that the flotilla is both necessary, and very much appreciated, as much for its expression of solidarity with their struggle for justice and freedom, as for the goods they are bringing.

Unfortunately, the recordings of additional women were rendered inaudible by a horde of chidlren who swamped us, shouting and laughing and calling out comments, so although there were equal numbers of men and women interviewed, the men were better at keeping the kids at bay!
