Free Gaza!


A portion of the hundreds of people who participated in the Gaza Freedom March across the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday, in solidarity with marchers in Gaza and Egypt and Israel who marched (and who in most cases were prevented from marching by the authorities) to oppose the seige of Gaza.

Meanwhile in Egypt, a French woman named Marie Renee, a member of the Gaza Freedom March delegation who was protesting because they were being refused permission by the Egyptian government to enter Gaza, was beaten to death by Egyptian police. Do you suppose the media will be making sure that the whole world knows her name?

I'd say "Happy New Year," but I'm afraid the events of the past New Year in Gaza have put a damper on that sentiment.
