Bearing Witness

About

This is a blog was originally about my experiences travelling through the Middle East. Documenting several months volunteer work I did for Project Hope in Nablus in the West Bank, part of what is referred to as the Palestinian occupied territories. With some travel, history and news thrown in for good measure.

Then it documented my attempted voyage to Gaza with the Freedom Flotilla Two [FF2] – as we attempted to break the brutal siege of Gaza that has been in full effect since 2007 and is collectively punishing the people of Gaza, primarily because they exercised their democratic rights.

Post FF2  it also covered my second attempt to sail to Gaza on Freedom waves and this time around it will be covering my role in the Gaza’s Ark project – which will sail from Palestine against the continuing blockade with a trade not aid focus.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank some people who have helped make all this possible. James, Rihab, Father Dave, Raul, Vivienne, Adam and Sylvia for their vision and commitment. My Family for their support and patience and my friends for their constant encouragement.

Well here we go again !
