The last video message from the first Flotilla ship, the Marianne in Messina, Sicily, before they set sail to join the other Freedom Flotilla III boats heading for Gaza by the end of June. [Video in Swedish and English language sections]
On board are two New Zealand media reps; senior journalist with MaoriTV, Ruwani Perera, and award-winning cameraman, Jake Bryant (both of whom can be briefly spotted in this video clip during the wharf-side briefing). Their mission has been facilitated by Kia Ora Gaza. Watch out for their reports.
The Marianne, which has sailed from Sweden, stopped in at the Messina port to receive the solidarity and support of Italian people. From there, Gaza is on the horizon.
