The Rachel Corrie Sails

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.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
