A brief report of the convoy re-union
Around 300 convoy drivers, supporters and friends crowded into Grand Occasions in Sparkhill, Birmingham on Saturday afternoon for the first Viva Palestina convoy re-union. Those attending listened to contributions both members and supporters of the convoy including among others Ghada Razuki, Yvonne Ridley, Cllr Salma Yacoob from Birmingham and Talat Ali from Manchester. All were agreed that the Viva Palestina project must carry on into the future.
Convoy members were elated when it was announced that, in honour of their actions in breaking the siege of Gaza, every member of the convoy had been awarded honorary Palestinian citizenship and would soon be receiving their very own Palestinian passports.
We tucked into an excellent lunch as we waited for George Galloway. George had spent a busy morning on the phone to the media in both Britain and Canada, responding to the decision by Ottawa’s neo-con Conservative government to ban him from entering Canada.
George outlined some ideas about the future for Viva Palestina – this included the possibility of a flotilla of boats to break the sea siege of Gaza and the opening of a Viva Palestina shop to sell goods produced in Gaza, as well as solidarity material. George will be setting off on a ‘Palestine Tour’ of the North America on Monday where the story of Viva Palestina will be heard at full-to-capacity meetings across the continent – including in Canada.
Convoy leader Kevin Ovenden suggested a number of ‘next steps’ for Viva Palestina, which were agreed as a consensus of the event. These included setting up Viva Palestina as a membership organisation, with a membership fee of £10 and fund-raising to allow the organisation to continue to work on future solidarity including boycott campaigns and aid projects.
We will send out a fuller report soon.
