(BETHLEHEM) - The Greek authorities apparently succumbed to the US and Israel threats and have stopped the humanitarian ships from sailing to break the illegal and immoral siege in Gaza.
We all need to call Greek embassies around the world and complain because if they maintain this policy it means they are complicit in violations of basic human rights; human rights organizations and the UN has called the siege on Gaza collective punishment and a crime against humanity.
The contact information for Greek missions in all countries are here: http://www.mfa.gr/www.mfa.gr/en-US/Services/Directory/Greek+Missions+Abroad/ [I sent to many of the listed emails and also called.
It is important that we all act now] For the website of the flotilla, go to http://www.freedomflotilla.eu/
Delay in the sailing of the ships means they might sail just as hundreds of Internationals come join us for a week of activities July 9-16 (see http://www.PalestineJN.org ). We must all get involved. Volunteers are still needed in all areas. Please email us and come work with us. Silence is complicity and action is the best antidote to despair
