Gaza’s Ark with Col. Ann Wright

Sailing from Palestine against the Blockade

Gaza’s Ark will build a boat in Gaza. A crew of internationals and Palestinians will sail it out of Gaza carrying Palestinian products to fulfill trade deals with international buyers. Col. Ann Wright will report on the latest effort to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza.

Col. Wright served as U.S. Deputy Ambassador in Afghanistan. On March 19, 2003, the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, she resigned, stating that, without the authorization of the UN Security Council, the invasion of Iraq would violate international law.

She was on the May 2010 Freedom Flotilla I, attacked by the Israeli military, and was an organizer for the 2009 Gaza Freedom March (pictured above) and the US Boat to Gaza in the 2011 Freedom Flotilla II.

Reception and refreshments at 6 pm; Talk begins at 7 pm
