International Piracy?

Whilst reports at the moment are little sketchy it appears that an aid convoy to Gaza has been attacked by Israeli commandos and that there are a number of deaths.

It seems that the attack also happened in International waters which would make this attack on a flotilla of boats travelling from Cypress piracy.

a couple of photos from yesterdays vigil/protest at City hall. I’d estimate that there were around 300 people in attandence (and quite a few folks bemused as they tried to get to the Spring Continental Market in the grounds of City Hall)

one particularly vocal Palestinian protester proclaiming "Palestine is still Palestine" as she held a necklace around her neck. She has been her for 47 years and her sister and other relatives live in Gaza.
