The General Union of Palestinian Women (GUPW) held a solidarity rally in Ramallah on the West Bank for the Women’s Boat to Gaza and more importantly their sisters in Gaza. The rally held in Al-Manara Square had signs in both Arabic and English.

According to GUPW member, Faiha Abduhadi “international solidarity is what is needed to help free Palestine.”  Wendy Goldsmith from Canada, who sailed on the Zaytouna-Oliva from Barcelona to Ajaccio and Messina, agrees: “We are thrilled that our sisters in Ramallah joined together in solidarity with us today. Amal and Zaytouna belong to all of us and whether we are on land or sea, together we sail towards the conscience of humanity.”
