Join us to hear eye-witness accounts from five Free Palestine Movement Americans who survived the attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla:
Ambassador Edward Peck: Turning the Freedom Flotilla attack into diplomatic victory
Veteran Joe Meadors: USS Liberty survivor, re-opening the Liberty investigation
Gene St. Onge: Bringing decades of structural engineering to rebuilding of Gaza
Janet Kobren: Co-Founder and long time Jewish American activist
Dr. Paul Larudee: Co-founder, U.S. advisor to Saudi Arabia and co-organizer of the first voyage to Gaza.
Two years ago, a small California nonprofit changed the world by sailing two small boats into Gaza, and inspiring thousands around the globe to stand up to the Israeli blockade of Gaza. One of its co-founders has addressed the European Parliament, and the Free Palestine Movement (FPM) has recently been invited for accreditation by the United Nations. Even more ambitious and far-reaching projects are ahead, which the FPM will unveil at its grand fundraiser and educational session.
