GP Prez Cand Cynthia McKinney: On My Way to Gaza

[Update! from Tuesday, Dec. 30th in the afternoon: Dignity landed safely in Lebanon. Crew okay.]

[Update! Tuesday, December 30th, am: Israeli gunboats attacked. Dignity boat rammed another boat and is taking on some water. Crew okay. Story is: here.]

From Cynthia McKinney:


First of all, I have to thank FreeGaza.org and Paul Larudee for tracking me down to extend the invitation to travel to Gaza to learn first-hand of the situation there, particularly since I had spoken out on it during the trip to Damascus to deliver my remarks and that never happened.  I’ve since learned that one other US resident was delayed for three hours at the airport as she attempted to make it to Damascus.  Seems I was being too kind to the ticket agents who seemed truly confused about where I was going and what I needed in order to get there–never once allowing me to proceed to security and to my transfer point, which was Paris.  I thank her for letting me know that she, too, had the exact same experience with the ticket agents.  She did, however, get to board her plane and made it safely to Damascus to participate in the event marking the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Right of Return contained in it.

Ooops, I knew I wasn’t going to have much time to write.  I will connect with you again when I can.  I understand the undertaking that I am now involved in:  humanitarian relief–medical supplies–to the residents of Gaza.  I am being called to board my flight.  I am now in Prague, first stop on a journey from which I hope to return and be able  to tell you more.

Oh, by the way, I asked the young people here if they remembered Prague Summer, the Brezhnev Doctrine, or if they wanted protection by the U.S. with a missile shield.  No, they don’t remember Prague Summer; no, they don’t remember the Brezhnev Doctrine, and no, they don’t want to be protected by the U.S.

  2. Thank you so much for your courage and for presenting the truth about Palestine. I am an American living and working in Europe and am horrified at what is happening and has been happening for a long time. I am not proud of America at all , but am very proud of you. Please contact me if I can be of any help to you in central Europe. You and all the people who are working with you are in my prayers and hopes.
