Media and the public from all around the world are following Ship to Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla on their way towards Gaza. The trawler Marianne av Göteborg and the rest of the Flotilla are now only a day or two from their destination Gaza. On-board Marianne are among others a television crew from al-Jazeera´s English channel as well as crews from Israeli TV2 and from New Zeeland, Maori Television. The biggest interest can of course be observed in the Middle East, where Palestinian, Israeli and other media organisations report continuously. But also European, American and Russian media is following the blockade- breaking action. As a result of the recently published report from UN Human Rights Commission claiming that both Israel and Hamas committed war crimes during the last Israeli war on Gaza, the political temperature has risen. Another factor that has drawn attention to the Ship to Gaza is the Palestinian complaint to the International Criminal Court based on, among other things, alleged Israeli war crimes during last summer´s warfare.
