This morning, I walked to the Indian Ocean and made salt in defiance of
the British Occupation of India.Â This morning, I marched in Selma; I
stood down tanks in Tiananmen Square, and I helped tear down the Berlin
Wall.Â This morning I became a Freedom Rider.
Todayâ€™s Freedom Riders are sailing small boats into the Gaza Strip in
open defiance of the Israeli Occupation and blockade.Â This morning, I
arrived in Gaza aboard the SS Dignity, part of a Free Gaza Movement
delegation of twenty seven doctors, lawyers, teachers, and human rights
activists from across the world, including Mairead Maguireâ€”the 1976
Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
