"About 40 brave Americans have cast their lot with civil society by setting sail on the American-flagged ship to Gaza, the "Audacity of Hope". Among them are men and women, elderly, and many Jewish-Americans as well. They will be joined by about ten ships and 300 other activists. They simply refuse to sit idly by like their governments as the crime of the siege of Gaza continues....As the collective punishment of 1.5 millions civilians persists, it's time to ask yourself: which side are you on?"
"Alice Walker is sailing on the flotilla in spite of the dangers because she knows it is right and she knows it is just....She has shown what the determination of a boatful of people can achieve. In our little battle at the checkpoint, we won, not because we stooped to the soldiers’ level but because we rose above and stood up for what is truly right. In Bilin, the tireless protesters return week after week demanding that a simple God-given right be granted to them. And piece by little piece, they, just like all Palestinians, will achieve it."
