George Galloway: Resisting war from Gaza to Kandahar

Monday, March 30, 2009 - 23:00

British MP George Galloway recently led a massive aid caravan to Gaza, following Israel's 22-day war.

Starting in London, England, the caravan drove over 10,000 km through eight countries in Europe and North Africa, before passing through the Rafah border crossing in Egypt on March 10, 2009.

The caravan stretched more than two kilometers and was comprised of over 300 volunteers in 100 vehicles – including five ambulances, a fire truck and a boat.

Over $1.1 million in aid was delivered to the people of Gaza.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
