This song is dedicated to the 9 unarmed Peace Activists who were shot (repeatedly)and killed by the Israeli Army in May. The activists were aboard the Turkish ship the 'Mavi Marmara' which was part of the 9-ship international 'Break the Siege of Gaza' Flotilla carrying medical aid, foodstuffs and cement to the besieged people of the GAZA Strip.
Other land convoys and flotillas are planned for the end of September and beginning of November. Supporters of Palestine in Swansea have begun fund-raising to send a Swansea man with the 'Road to Hope' Convoy.
If you would like to donate towards Medical Aid for the next Convoy, you can do so via the PayPal button on the left.

2 International Solidarity Movement activists who had been arrested by the IDF in the West Bank gave a Talk and Slideshow in the Environment Centre last Friday the 30th of July.
Ryan Olander and Bridget Chappell have been speaking in cities across Europe, from Budapest to Stockholm about their experiences and observations from their time working with the ISM on the ground in Occupied Palestine.
Having spent time in an Israeli prison, they set a legal precedent by arguing in the Israeli courts that the policy of raiding Area A (Ramallah)to arrest International activists was illegal.
Nearly 40 people turned out on a rainy evening and were rewarded with a really inspiring presentation. Afterwards we shared tea and Palestinian food (thanks to those who contributed to that).
