Breaking the Siege of Gaza and Challenging the Israeli Lobby's Stranglehold
on U.S. Policy!

Second Freedom Flotilla begins its voyage to Gaza with two Massachusetts
peace activists on board!








Hear from Ridgely Fuller and Paki Wieland about their imminent voyage on the
"Audacity of Hope" to break the siege of Gaza. And Daniela Loffreda from
Italy, a good friend of Vic Arrigoni, the longtime Italian human rights
activist recently murdered in Gaza and in whose spirit "stay human" the
Flotilla sails.

In addition, we will have a report of the tumultuous events in DC during the
recent Move Over AIPAC Conference: Marty Federman, Rick Colbath-Hess, Ellen
Graves, Priscilla Lynch and Sarah Roche-Mahdi will share their highlights or
lowlights.

There will also be short PowerPoints of great street theater in DC outside
the AIPAC conference and of conditions in GAZA.

This eye-opening two-part evening will be moderated by Heike Schotten, Asst.
Professor of Political Science at UMASS, Boston.
