Caoimhe Butterly and Free Gaza Updates

caoimhe_butterlyThe Free Gaza Movement are poised to return this Northern Hemispherean summer with humanitarian cargo and medical relief, and this time they are promising, with help from supporters, not one boat or two, but a veritable people’s flotilla of regular trips to break the blockade. This comes after the recent sinking in a storm of their flagship the Dignity, which had for six months withstood active intimidation from the zionist entity that included a deliberate sinking attempt in December.

Caoimhe Butterly (Quiva) was in Gaza from November 2008 with the Free Gaza Movement and lived through the (ongoing) siege for two months. She is currently on a speaking tour and spoke recently in Sheffield, where she ably elaborates upon the situation and her experiences. (This is followed by Free Gaza’s latest video. Also take a gander at artists group No More Ignorance who have produced a downloadable 70 pp Gaza Guide).

Latest Free Gaza video (thanks H)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
