Sail together for Palestine/Fly the flag for Palestine
The Women's Boat to Gaza is due to reach the shores of Gaza in early October. It will consist of an all-women crew and noteworthy participants from around the world.
Show your support for the Women's Boat to Gaza by boarding our solidarity boat on the River Thames. Join the International Committee to Break the Siege of Gaza, Palestinian Forum in Britain and OLIVE on to demand an end to the illegal inhuman blockade of Gaza.
The Gaza Strip has been under siege for a decade, with a strict Israeli-Egyptian blockade controlling the entry and exit of people and goods. In 2014 suffered the third and bloodiest military offensive by Israel in eight years and has not since been able to recover due to the blockade.
The siege of Gaza amounts to collective punishment and illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Israel has been consistently violating international and humanitarian law, and currently being investigated by the International Criminal Court for war crimes. Gaza has frequently reported to be heading for an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe. The UN has predicted that it will become inhabitable by 2020.
The Women's Boat to Gaza (WBG) is due to set sail from Barcelona on the 14th September 2016 to reach the shores of Gaza by early October. It will be sailed entirely by an all-women crew and will carry aboard noteworthy participants from around the world.
