(NEW YORK) – The people behind the US Boat to Gaza wish readers a Happy 2011 as they offer thanks in advance for support of this critical mission. “With your help and participation, we will sail a U.S.-flagged ship, The Audacity of Hope, to break the U.S.-backed Israeli blockade of Gaza this spring,” the group stated in a news release.

“We are writing to let you know, in case you don’t already, that application forms for those wishing to be considered as prospective passengers on The Audacity of Hope are available. Instructions for requesting an application form are on our website, ustogaza.org.”

Completed applications must be received by email no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on 15 January 2010 — the signed notarized hard copy must be received at our post office box by 22 January.

The release states, “Being a passenger on the boat is not for everyone, and we urge you to think carefully about the risks and benefits before making the decision to apply. Please know that each completed application will receive careful consideration – and also know that we will only be able to accept a small percentage of the applications we anticipate receiving.

“Whether you will sail on the boat or remain on land, we hope we can count on your continued engagement and support before, during, and especially after the journey.

“Our Outreach Committee is working to build a nationwide network of activists who will help keep the U.S. Boat visible in the months before the voyage, through teach-ins, film screenings and other events on campuses and in communities across the country.

“If you are willing to be part of that effort in some way, please email us at ustogaza@gmail.com — we will put you in touch with others in your area who are organizing as part of the U.S. Boat’s growing national team.

“For peace with justice,”
