Lissabon - Motril

Aissa Boukanoum

Journalist, Euronews, Human Rights Activist

I stayed on board of Marianne for 3 days sailing from Lisbone, Marina parque Das Na coes till Motril port in Spain as human right activist. I want to show my support and solidarity to the initiative which seek to end peacefully the blockade on Gaza’s strip. These 3 days inside Marianne,I met with peoples that had one aim, which is to attempt to break peacefully the blockade of the besieged palestenian population. All of them are engaged in non-violent action to help Palestenian in Gaza. All the people inside Marianne are engaged solely in non-violent action in support of the Palestenian people and their human rights. Inside,all passenger and crew member participate in routine job such as cleaning, controlling etc. Wellu is an experienced captain, told me if something happen to his boat, he should stay inside to save it. I really appreciate those people who fight for peace action, I admire their humanitarian approach and their engagement for a mankind. I really regret not to continue with them untill the final stop.

Ship to Gaza- aktivist, Uppsala, 42 år

Jag sitter i styrelesen i Palestinska Folkets Förening i Uppsala och har jobbat med Ship to Gaza i Uppsala sedan 2010.  Jag är själv från Gaza och jag brinner för att bryta blockaden av Gaza. Min familj och mina släktingar kontaktar mig dagligen. De uppskattar Ship to Gazas aktioner och önskar att vi kan bryta blockaden snart.

Ship to Gaza-aktivist, Oslo, 20 år

Jeg har vært Palestina-aktivist i mange år og i den tiden blandt annet vært støttespiller for Palestinerleir i Oslo, vært på Vestbredden og litt aktiv i Faglig Utvalg i Palestinakommiteen i Oslo. Jeg er veldig taknemmelig over å få være med og håper at mine ferdigheter som elektriker kommer godt med!

Jeg vil seile med Marianne av Göteborg fordi jeg støtter et hvert initiativ som er til for å bryte staten Israels blokade av Gaza og jeg støtter Palestinernes frigjøringskamp. Når urett blir rett blir motstand en plikt!
