Midnight on the Mavi Marmara

In the pages of Midnight on the Mavi Marmara, a range of activists, journalists, and analysts piece together the events that occurred that May night, unpicking their meanings for Israel’s illegal, three-year-long blockade of Gaza and the decades-long Israel/Palestine conflict more generally. Mixing together first-hand testimony, documentary record, and illustration, with hard-headed analysis and historical overview, this collection reveals why the attack on Gaza Freedom Flotilla may just turn out to be Israel’s Selma, Alabama: the beginning of the end for an apartheid Palestine.

Panel Discussion

* Paul Larudee - Cofounder of the Free Gaza movement, which broke the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza shipping five times; Cofounder of the Free Palestine Movement, which fielded a U.S. Delegation in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla; and contributor to Midnight on the Mavi Marmara.

* Ramsey El Qare - Palestinian activist and organizer with the Palestinian Youth Network (PYN).

* Ragina Johnson - Bay Area antiwar activist and member of the International Socialist Organization (ISO).
