Boats for Gaza: Forbidden to Dock in Paris

Two boats for Gaza were forbidden to dock in Paris by the prefecture on Sunday 17 June. “They are part of the International Freedom Flotilla, which about every two years tries to break the illegal blockade of Gaza,” says Claude Leostic, coordinator in France for the Gaza Flotilla. “We are in an extremely serious drift of the French State. Here they forbid ships that have a peaceful vocation. The current French policy is taking a turn that is extremely worrying.”
