Israeli Navy Massacres at-least nine on the Freedom Flotilla in International Waters

Posted by anti militarist on May 31, 2010

The Israeli Navy massacres at-least 9 possibly more than 20 unarmed humanitarian aid activists in international waters and injures dozens. The Freedom Flotilla had European MEPs, priests, people from many nationalities, including Israeli, and 10,000 tons of aid to the 3-year besieged Gaza.  This is absolutely disgusting, the time to act is now.

She visited Iraq between 1999 and 2004 and has witnessed first hand the devastating effects of the High Tech weapons used by the coalition forces. She defied sanctions and entered Iraq with a rucksack full of medicines and visited the Hospitals and returned to Britain informing people that new and terrible weapons were causing similar deformities in births as in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She has written an informative and concise book about Depleted Uranium and the devastation it has reaped in Iraq.She is a teacher, human ecologist and human rights campaigner, she talks both with humanitarian compassion and political insight.
