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.
