Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur: conference on #Gaza, “Breaking the Siege: In the Spirit of Rachel Corrie and Mavi Marmara

We invite you to a 1-day conference on Gaza, “Breaking the Siege: In the Spirit of Rachel Corrie and Mavi Marmara” that will be held on 11 July 2010 (Sunday) at Dewan Tun Abdul Razak 1, Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur.

Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO), chaired by YABhg Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, is the organiser of this Conference. As you are aware, the PGPO recently funded three vessels, one of which was the Rachel Corrie, carrying medical supplies and building materials to be part of the recent flotilla to Gaza. Israeli military boarded the lead ship, the Mavi Marmara, and shot dead nine Turkish activists who were on board. All ships were forcibly escorted to Israel, activists jailed, and supplies impounded. While activists have been released, the ships that were bound for Gaza are still being held by Israel.

We believe this conference is necessary to counter the Israeli propaganda of what took place on the Mavi Marmara and to build awareness of the three-year siege against Gaza. The conference will also outline necessary action steps for Malaysians to take to aid the cause of the Palestinians.

The programme will feature local and international speakers who will comprise of representatives aboard the Mavi Marmara, as well as humanitarians who have experienced life under the Israeli blockade against Gaza.

Our cause will greatly benefit from your support and attendance. Admission is free but contributions towards the cause is welcome. We would appreciate it if you can spread the wordabout the Conference to your friends and family.
