On the program I spoke with David Heap, a prominent Palestinian rights activist who was aboard the Canadian Boat to Gaza and is a member of Gaza’s Ark.
This new project will attempt to raise money to build a boat in Gaza that will then set sail with goods made in Gaza to area ports in an effort to again highlight the gross human rights violations suffered by the Gazan people by Israel, and send a message that the people of Gaza have not given up and are struggling for justice and dignity.
The blockade of Gaza by Israel has practically destroyed the economy there, and on top of this Israel launched two attacks on Gaza in 2008-09, and again just last year killing over 1400 in 2008-09 and hundreds more last year.
I spoke to David Heap via Skype from Nice, France where he is on a teaching assignment:
