 More than 500 activists from Switzerland alone have signed up to take part in the humanitarian Freedom Flotilla 2 convoy, which is expected to set sail to an under siege Gaza before the end of 2010 to deliver aid, the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza said, adding that the campaign has received thousands of other requests from the world over.

The European campaign spokesman in Switzerland and Swiss MP Josef Zisyadis said in a press statement Monday: “Preparations to participate in the Swiss ship in the Freedom Flotilla 2 are complete, as more than 500 people signed up to participate in breaking the unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip for the fifth straight year.”

The number of signees chosen to board the ship will be announced, Zisyadis said, adding that his campaign desires to make a third of the participants media leads. Dozens of Swiss media outlets have already placed requests to board the ship. The ship’s operators have stopped accepting requests from media.

The second third of participants on the ship are set to be political and trade union figures, while the last third are set to be personalities who will represent the civilian population of Switzerland.
