On International Women’s Day, The Women's Boat to Gaza, a project of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, announced that it will sail in mid September 2016! Across the world, we participated in events announcing our project. (links here to local or international events and stories). The Women’s Boat to Gaza project now seeks submissions TO NAME THE BOAT!
We are looking for names that reflect our core principles:
* A boat with only women crew and delegates
* Solidarity with the women, children and men of Gaza and Palestine
* Highlighting the role of women in daily life, the struggle and resistance
* A non-violent, direct action that is not affiliated with any government
* Ultimate goal is to break the illegal blockade of Gaza
Closing date for entries is April 25.
The successful submission will be honoured both aboard the boat and on our website www.womensboattogaza.org
Please send your submissions with a brief rationale for your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
