The Rachel Corrie Sails

by
Abby Zimet

Having newly bought a ship and renamed it the Rachel Corrie, the Free
Gaza Movement will run the Israeli blockade around May Day to bring
Palestinians in Gaza much needed cement, paper, books and medical
equipment. They will be forming a flotilla with several European groups -
bringing medical supplies from Ireland and England, school supplies
from Norway - and are collecting donations here.

"We are doing this to show the people of Gaza that
they are not alone." - Derek Graham of Free Gaza.

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
