The Free Gaza Movement was ready to set sail yesterday from Larnaca Cyprus on their eighth mission, bringing Human rights workers, dignitaries and construction materials to help rebuild the devastated region of Gaza, but their ships were not given permission to leave due to concerns about their welfare and safety.

The group stated on their website that “Our friends in Cyprus tell us that the voyage to Gaza is too dangerous, and they are worried we will be harmed at sea.”

The most recent post on their web site states “Monday, maybe Tuesday, we have satisfied all requests. No reason to be held. Most passengers staying. Permission for 20. We will go.”

Two of their boats, the Free Gaza and the Spirit of Humanity are standing ready proudly displaying flags from sixteen nations who are determined not to forget the horror of an occupation by Israel that has lasted over forty years.
