The International Committee for Breaking the Siege of Gaza (ICBSG) is a Palestinian driven initiative to mobilise the international community to act now to end the Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip through peaceful means.
ICBSG is a founding organisation of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, a grassroots people-to-people solidarity movement composed of campaigns and initiatives from all over the world working together to end the siege of Gaza by organising actions against the blockade that are always governed by the principles of nonviolence and nonviolent resistance.
Following are the points of unity for members of Freedom Flotilla Coalition and partners in Freedom Flotilla actions:
1. The Freedom Flotilla Coalition is an international network of civil society grass root campaigns, organizing and supporting non-violent direct action to challenge, with the purpose to end, the Israeli blockade of Gaza by sea. We act to ensure that the international community fulfils its responsibility to establish and defend the human rights of the Palestinian people.
2. We reject all forms of collective punishment, and the assertion of collective guilt. We reject all forms of racism and discrimination, including Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
3. We believe in universal human rights, freedoms and equality of all.
