The Tahrir and social justice: Karen DeVito interview

Karen DeVito:

Fear is the problem. In an age when wealth and power have thoroughly corrupted the machinery of democracy, civil disobedience is one of the few strategies that offer any hope of advancing the cause of social justice.

The system, however, does not take such disobedience lightly. Karen DeVito, a Canadian member of the flotilla that tried to break the siege of Gaza in the summer of 2011, knew this before she joined the Tahrir in Greece.

Tahir - The Canadian Boat to Gaza

It's time to send a Canadian Boat to Gaza

Canadian civil society has a responsibility to fight the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza and to expose the Canadian government's unjustified support for Israel.

The time has come to send a Canadian boat to challenge the blockade of Gaza, in coordination with similar international efforts.

We need to raise $300,000 (cost of boat and crew, not including aid to carry to Gaza) over the course of the coming months. We need to approach Canadian public figures to be on the boat.
