"On the right of resistance" by Ramzi Kysia
We live in an era defined by its brutality. Our challenge is whether to accept this - or to take the risks necessary to transform our world.

A year ago, 44 people from 17 countries sailed to Gaza in two small wooden boats. We did what the world would not do - we broke through the siege of Gaza. Over the last year, the Free Gaza Movement organized seven more voyages, successfully arriving to Gaza five times. Ours remain the only international ships to reach the Gaza Strip in over forty-two years. But it is only the beginning of attempts to resist the brutal occupation of Gaza.

It's been more than six months since the end of Israel's murderous assault on the Gaza Strip. They killed over1,400 Palestinians including 400 children.The continuing failure of the international community to enforce its own laws and protect the people of Gaza demands that we, as private citizens, nonviolently intervene. We must act because our governments refuse to do so.

So, join the Free Gaza Movement, the International Solidarity Movement, and the BDS Movement. Join us and other campaigns in the struggle for justice for Palestine.

Become part of the resistance.
