Bill Hughes’ Slideshow of 22 photos of US Boat to Gaza: A Send-Off

By BillyClub - Posted on 16 June 2011

In about a week’s time, three individuals concerned about Human Rights will be leaving this country for Athens, Greece, to board a US Boat to Gaza, aka “Freedom Flotilla II.” They are: Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK; Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst; and D.C.-based activist, Missy Lane. Last night, June 15, 2011, a “send-off” party for the trio was held at Ms. Benjamin’s home in northeast Washington, D.C.
