Alice Walker on board the "Audacity of Hope" flotilla to Gaza

The celebrated American writer Alice Walker is on board the second flotilla headed to Gaza. Like the first flotilla, this journey is meant to call the world's attention one more time to the plight of the people of Gaza and Palestine, the stateless people who continue to suffer incredibly while the world plays its geopolitical chess game. The cries of the children of Palestine, their parent's yearning for a state of their own, for the freedom most of the world now takes for granted will, hopefully, soon be heeded. I hope to see in my lifetime a region where Jews, Arabs, Hebrews, Christians, Muslims will live in dignity and relative peace. Here is Alice Walker's statement about why she is on board the Audacity of Hope published by the Guardian of London
