Kelley television series, “The Practice,” and Toni Morrison’s film Beloved. She currently co-stars on the new Hulu series “Chance” starring Hugh Laurie. 


 

A lot has happened since the Amal-Hope and Zaytouna-Oliva left Barcelona. Amal-Hope had mechanical difficulties so we have a new site to raise money for a replacement ship.

Zaytouna-Oliva is on it's way to Ajaccio, France and will arrive Sunday evening. You can follow her here.

Background:

Gaza has been under Israeli blockade for the past decade during which Israel has also launched countless attacks against the besieged population, turning their life into a nightmare and a continuous struggle. Through Freedom Flotillas and other naval missions we have brought international attention to their suffering and their resistance. The Women’s Boat to Gaza is an initiative of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) and is composed of civil society organizations and campaigns from many countries.

Be part of this historic human rights campaign!
