Freedom Flotilla II – Stay Human: Florida Emergency Response Network

June 18th – In Miami our Emergency Response Plan calls for a massive picket line and rally at the Torch of Friendship (Downtown Miami) – Across Street from Israeli Consulate NE 3rd Street & Biscayne Blvd. (On East side, Close to Bayside) Miami, FL beginning at 4:00 PM the day following any military action against the flotilla.

We’re a group of Human Rights Defenders working to support Freedom Flotilla II – Stay Human. The U.S. Boat to Gaza ( The Audacity of Hope) will be a part of this amazing international effort to break the illegal siege on Gaza. There will be several Americans on the Audacity of Hope including Huwaida Arraf who had given an amazing lecture very recently in Miami. The Audacity of Hope is also endorsed by Holocaust Survivor Hedy Epstein. Freedom Flotilla II has been given the name “Stay Human” to honor the Italian Activist Vittorio Arrigoni who was killed recently in Gaza. Stay Human is a book of eyewitness accounts by Vittorio Arrigoni of the Gaza Massacre in 2009 which killed more than 1400 Palestinians.

Israeli government officials have vowed to send snipers and attack dogs to stop the flotilla’s supposed “terrorists” and “provocateurs” from entering Gaza. Anyone who doubts their seriousness is simply not paying attention. On May 31 of 2010, after several weeks of similar threats from Israel a premeditated assault on the Mavi Marmara was launched that resulted in the murder of nine Turkish volunteers.

Our efforts to support the Freedom Flotilla II – Stay Human (and the Audacity of Hope) must include an emergency response plan in the event that Israeli Occupation Forces once again attempt to attack us or board any of the ships in the flotilla.

We urge other groups in the U.S to begin making their own Emergency Response Plan now and post them here. If you are not from Florida, we urge you create a similiar Emergency Response EVENT PAGE for your city or region.
