Italians Refuse To Cave To Israeli Threats And Coersion

Estelle is sailing!

The port authorities in La Spezia in northern Italy finally decided to not give in to Israeli pressure. Just minutes ago Ship to Gaza and its vessel Estelle got final clearance to depart from port. Credit to the responsible officials who showed integrity and a sense of justice!

Take Action Today!
Please sign our international petition to end the blockade of Gaza now!

We were beginning to recognize the pattern from last years Flotilla all too well, when a Greek government under pressure took the decision to detain all Flotilla boats in Greek ports.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry has already confirmed that it is pressuring those countries whose citizens are on board to prevent them from "approaching" Gaza. If "approaching" Gaza includes sailing from La Spezia to Napoli, that would have been a serious violation of one of the EU's basic principles: freedom of movement.

It would be unacceptable for the EU to cave in to such pressure, turning against its own citizens and vessels. It is especially serious when such actions are taken against a peaceful, humanitarian action which enjoys wide public and political support. That support is currently being demonstrated in our petition to end the illegal and inhumane blockade of Gaza, which has been signed by thousands of people from all over the world in the last few days.

Ship to Gaza and our partners in the Freedom Flotilla Coalition urge each one of our supporters to follow S/V Estelles journey, and if necessary act in their respective roles and areas: sympathizers, local activists, support organizations, union organizations, EU parliamentarians and national parliamentarians.

Use any resources available to you to protest the Israeli government's attempt to expand its blockade to ports in northern Italy. Ask your respective foreign ministers, U.S. Representatives questions, and do the same to the EU through the EU Parliament. Conduct support actions to demand that Estelle stays free to sail.

For our Italian readers please see Rumbo A Gaza: Rumbo a Gaza es una iniciativa de sociedad civil a sociedad civil impulsada por personas de diferentes ciudades del estado español que quieren manifestar su solidaridad con la población de Gaza de una manera activa y eficaz rompiendo el injusto embargo que mantiene ahogada a la población.
End the blockade of Gaza!

  1. All they were tying to do was deliver aid – basic food, water and meacdil supplies to those poor suffering people who have been subjected to the evilness of Zionist Israel. Israelis do not belong in Palestine! Please we all should know by now that the imaginary ‘god’ in the sky didn’t ‘choose’ you, you’re not special, your rights and needs do not come above anyone else so stop killing for your selfish benefit. This is worse than the holocaust for Palestine, continually denying them basic supplies is wrong and you should be ashamed, Although you probably aren’t you’ll just blame it on Hamas etc. same old broken record. You need to learn that you cannot steal a country off the indigenous, you need to live peacefully among all not slaughter them all to make room for yourselves. You don’t declare your nuclear weapons, you ignore the UN and every other country, at the end of the day Israel is the biggest terrorist hub of the world not what we are told to believe by the media which is 98% owned by Zionist USA.
