Updates on the Viva Palestina aid convoy

Updated frequently.

Hi all.

I'm quite disgusted that the media - even the socalled progressive, non-mainstream media - isn't covering the Viva Palestina aid/peace activist convoy to Gaza... in my view it's REALLY news, that 'ordinary people' take matters into their own hands this way.. we all could learn a thing or two from this (disclaimer: I was a member of the rather unsuccesful Human Shield Mission to Iraq, in 2003)

ANYWAY, to do my bit, I've set up a blog with updates from the Viva Palestina aid convoy:

If you come across any updates that aren't there, please feel free to post a comment.

Spread the word.

Viva Palestina, the movie

Everyone seems to be ignoring this one, not strictly an update, but the most watchable video about the convoy I've seen yet. It is feature length, reports from Hyde Park and brings it back to grass roots, not just the party luminaries, and explains everything the convoy is about. It also conveys the sense in which there was a vast public upswelling of support all across the country, though mostly the muslim parts, but also and especially in Tyrone, Six Counties. What a wonderful job that guy did. See him in part 5.

I applaud what you are doing and will RSS it into my aggregator. Thanks. Maybe we could find a way of working this in with the viva palestina site itself.
