Breaking the Israeli blockade for the second time, a Viva Palestina US aid covoy has crossed into the Gaza Strip at Rafah with 200 American activists, 50 trucks, and a million dollars worth of food, medicine and other supplies for the 1.5 million Palestinians stranded there. Organized by British MP George Galloway and then delayed at the border for ten days, the caravan included activist Orthodox Jews – a rare, heart-gladdening sight.

"Long live the people of Palestine."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
