Viva Palestina convey arrives in Gaza

Just received the following email about the humanitarian convey of aid which has been travelling from Britain to Gaza:

'After a difficult time in Egypt in which they were attacked (see Al Jazeera or Viva Palestina websites for info), they have made it! The convoy is IN GAZA NOW! George Galloway is being interviewed for the TV - a battery of microphones in front of him, but none of them carry the label 'BBC'...'

Congratulations to Viva Palestina!

Welcome the "Saviours of Gaza"!

Hossam - I would not call the convey 'saviours of Gaza' - and I can definitely see your point about Galloway's complicity with the Egyptian dictatorship and other dictatorships and maybe my congratulations should have been a bit more muted knowing now more about what he was up to in Egypt, but it is surely still a historic breakthrough on one level?

Also for all Galloway's faults, (egotism etc etc), out of all the MPs in the House of Commons it was only him that had the audacity to attempt this, and I think the fact that this convey got through has given confidence and inspiration to the wider movement in Britain in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

Yours for the Revolution still...
