Open letter to:
Georgios A. Papandreou
Prime Minister of Greece
Corfu, 3rd of July
Dear Mr. Papandreou,
We, members of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla II, are outraged by your
governmentīs decision to close the ports of Greece to our humanitarian
initiative, even by force if needed. From all parts of the world we have
come to the shores of Greece, leaving behind our work places and families,
in order to peacefully put into practice our solidarity with the oppressed
people of Gaza.
This decision not only violates the consecrated principle within
international law of the freedom of the seas and the ancient tradition of
freedom of the Mediterranean, but also disregards the claims for democracy
and self-determination of the people of Palestine as well as of the non-
governmental organizations we represent.
It is totally incomprehensible to us and fills us with just wrath that the
Greek government closes the ports to our ships at the very moment in which
you, Mr. Papandreou, have been constantly expressing the need for
solidarity with the Greek people. You and your government acting as an
ally of Israel in the Palestinian question means you also seem to have
forgotten the struggle against the military dictatorship in your own
The members of this international peace mission therefore demand, on
behalf of the people of Gaza, for us the same right to move that has been
granted for centuries to the Greek people in our countries.
MR. PAPANDREOU, LET US SAIL!
