Although some initial reports are starting to appear as Israel releases participants of the Freedom Flotilla, many activists remain unaccounted for. The Free Gaza Movement just sent out this press release:
International Solidarity Movement volunteers today expressed grave concern over the fate of wounded, imprisoned and missing flotilla activists.
The group said, with an information blackout from Israel preventing news of their plight reaching the media, speculation is mounting about the Internationals’ safety.
Theresa MacDermott (Scotland) Ewa Jasiewicz (Britain/Poland) and Caoimhe Butterly (Ireland) along with hundreds of other civilian passengers have not been heard from since before the Israeli attack on Monday morning.
Israel has today refused Free Gaza lawyers permission to make contact with the human Rights defenders.
