The European campaign to end the Siege on Gaza announced Monday that Freedom Flotilla 2 will be delayed until late September or early October due to expansion in participation from European countries.

The campaign noted that the fleet will have extensive media coverage at an unprecedented level, given the number of vessels and the 9,000 and counting international activists from around the world who have requested to participate in the mission.

More than thirty-five media organizations have requested to participate in the Freedom Flotilla 2, the Brussels-headquartered campaign said, asserting that it intends to have the largest possible number of media on board to detect any new follies Israel may commit against international peace activists.

In the same context, the campaign said: “Talks of allowing building materials [into Gaza] to be used by international organizations only, without meeting the people’s daily needs gives a clear indication that the unjust blockade is still imposed,” emphasizing that the decision to prevent Gaza citizens from benefiting from construction materials is what drives the campaign in establishing the Freedom Flotilla, to bring thousands of tons of building materials to end the suffering of thousands of families whose homes were destroyed by Israeli forces.

The European campaign to lift the siege on Gaza praised the call by EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton for pressuring Israel to open Gaza passageways and allow clearance to all of the people of Gaza’s needs.

“Ashton’s call during her visit to the Gaza Strip today, confirms that Zionist claims about easing the blockade do not meet the requirement, especially in relation to freedom of movement of a people under siege for the fourth consecutive year, through land, sea, and even air passageways,” said Rami Abdo, a member of the European campaign, in a press statement, underlining the necessity for a complete end to the blockade in order to provide the people of Gaza Strip with a decent life.
