A message from former Canadian MP Jim Manly: 'Speak out against blockade of Gaza'

| October 20, 2012

A pre-recorded video of Jim Manly for distribution at the time we lose contact with him on the Estelle. The loss of communication was likely due to an intervention by the Israeli navy that cut off communication and gets ready to board the Estelle, or may have already done so. Jim Manly is a former Canadian MP (Member of Parliament 1980-88) and retired United Church Minister.
