BBC coverage of the Convoy to Gaza
BBC NEWS coverage of the Convoy:
CALL THE BBC: 03700 100 222 & other media and other media and wake them up.
Meanwhile other media coverage include Egypt where Joti was quoted
Many of the convoy's volunteers have been blogging and Tweeting their thoughts during the journey. Joti Brar, a British political activist, trade unionist "and mom" has been actively providing her followers with information on the social media website Twitter. What becomes clear is how the VP volunteers' spirits lifted once they left Western Europe, travelling through Greece, where they were greeted by local mayors and MPs and provided with free pizzas from Pizza Hut, and on to Turkey. As Al-Ahram Weekly was going to press on Wednesday, Brar was Tweeting euphorically about the "royal" reception the convoy had received in Turkey.
"AMAZING reception at border. Big rally with solidarity orgs and TV crews right at crossing gate. Turkey is with us!" read her Tweet on 15 December.
