Viva Palestina Starts Entry To Gaza
Report by GEORGE GALLOWAY

The VIVA PALESTINA Convoy, and after facing ongoing Egyptian rejection and violent attacks by the Egyptian security forces, started on Wednesday evening [6th January 2010] to roll into the besieged Gaza Strip.

Thousands of Palestinians, carrying flowers and flags, gathered in the streets while the convoy continued to move in.

A Press conference would be held on Thursday [7th January 2010] and would be followed by the official ceremony of handing the international humanitarian aid.

The Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported that a convoy of eight truck started crossing the Rafeh Terminal.

On its website the VIVA PALESTINA reported that “convoy continues to move into the strip to be greeted by flowers and flag-waving crowds. Press conference later to be followed tomorrow [Thursday 7th January 2010] with ceremony to hand over the aid”.

One month, thousands of miles, ten countries, one ship and a four flights later, VIVA PALESTINA has begun to enter the besieged Gaza Strip.

.             “We are all emotional to see that all of Gaza are

.              out to greet us! Our VIVA PALESTINA convoy

.              is symbolic!  It shows the Palestinian people just

.              how much the people of the West do care.

.             “We come in peace to deliver humanitarian aid and

.              we hope that our convoy (and convoy’s like ours)

.              will help to build pressure on the Israeli government

.              to break the siege.”

.             ~Kevin Ovenden, convoy leader
