Featuring eyewitness stories about the Freedom Flotilla and Operation Cast Lead:
A peace activist, pacifist, author and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly is the co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. A frequent visitor to war zones, she has been in Iraq, Pakistan, Lebanon and other countries while they are under attack. She was in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009.
Joe Meadors was aboard the Greek ship Sfindona which participated in the Freedom Flotilla to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza. He was aboard the USS Liberty when the ship was attacked by Israel in 1967, the only attack of its kind in US naval history not to be the subject of a US government investigation.
Retired US Army colonel Ann Wright was a passenger aboard Challenger 1 in the Freedom Flotilla. Wright is one of three State Department officials to publicly resign because of her opposition to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, and has since become a prominent figure in the peace movement.
