Viva Palestina

Iran’s Press TV has interviewed a number of Irish activists entering Gaza with the Viva Palestina convoy, led by the Respect MP, George Galloway. The Viva Palestina aid convoy crossed over from Egypt where a number of activists were injured during scuffles with police at the port of el Arish. A group of five Derry activists are among the 500 who travelled with over one hundred vehicles carrying medical and other equipment in what has been billed as an attempt to ‘break the siege’ of Gaza. At least one of the Irish members of the convoy, from Cork, is reported to have been injured Wednesday during a blockade at the Egyptian port.
