Testimony from human rights workers who survived the Israeli Navy’s attack on the May, 2010 unarmed Freedom Flotilla that was attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza. Nine people were killed and over 50 wounded in the attack. San Francisco Bay Area activists Kathy Sheetz and Gene St. Onge were among the over 600 passengers and crew-members on six ships. The program will also include a West Bank update from recently returned local activists and information about boycott & divestment efforts you can get involved with locally (http://www.sacbds.org/campaigns).
