Some people wonder why we put ourselves on boats and sail across the Mediterranean to Gaza. We face one of the most vicious armies in the world, armed with only our determination.

On this, the second anniversary of Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza when 1400 Palestinians were killed, we want you to know you are not forgotten.

If governments refuse to hold Israel accountable for its war crimes against a civilian population, we, in civil society will continue to sail again and again until Israel’s brutal siege is over. We will return in the spring.
