Hear Mike Treen report back on the Freedom Flotilla

3 Aug

INVITATION:

to a public talk by Mike Treen who has returned home after surviving the violent & illegal attack on the Freedom Flotilla by armed Israeli commandos in international waters:

‘I have a few stories to tell’ says Mike.

7pm Sunday 5 August

Freemans Bay Community Centre, Hepburn St

free entry – donations welcome

We are all pleased to welcome back Mike Treen after representing our country on the 2018 international solidarity Freedom Flotilla determined to challenge Israel’s illegal and inhumane 11-year blockade of Gaza.

After being beaten, tasered and handcuffed, as a humanitarian boat he was on was hijacked by armed & masked Israeli soldiers in international waters on Sunday – then imprisoned and interrogated for days, to be finally deported, after his belongings were stolen, Mike is safely home again. His fellow passengers and crew have endured similar unwarranted and unlawful experiences, and all have been deported.

The second flotilla vessel, a sailing boat named ‘Freedom’ is due to approach Gaza today (3 August) also carrying medical aid.

International pressure is needed to demand the right of safe and unhindered passage to Gaza. We need to insist our government takes a stand against these outrageous attacks and demand Israel end its illegal and inhumane blockade of Gaza Strip.
