Road to Hope Convoy nears Egypt on the way to GAZA
Martin Longhurst from Swansea Palestine Community Link is travelling with the Road to Hope Humanitarian Aid Convoy to GAZA. The Convoy left London on October the 10th and has travelled across France and Spain, crossing over into Morocco and travelling through Algeria and Tunisia (escorted by hostile Tunisian Police)into Libya. There they received a warm welcome and are now nearing the Libyan /Egyptian border. It can only be hoped that Egypt allows them safe passage to the Rafah Border Crossing into GAZA. Last January the Viva Palestina Convoy were met with violence at the hands of the Egyptian Police before finally being allowed to enter GAZA.
