Viva Palestina aid convoy breaks Gaza siege!

The Viva Palestina aid convoy finally entered Gaza on Wednesday, after it received the approval of Egyptian authorities to bring several tons of humanitarian supplies into Gaza Strip.

One month, thousands of miles, ten countries, one ship and a four flights later, Viva Palestina has begun to enter the besieged Gaza Strip.

"We are all emotional to see that all of Gaza are out to greet us! Our Viva Palestina convoy is symbolic! It shows the Palestianian people just how much the people of the West do care.

" We come in peace to deliver humanitarian aid and we hope that our convoy (and convoy's like ours) will help to build pressure on the Israeli government to break the siege."
Kevin Ovenden, convoy leader
