28 August, 2010 — Gaza Friends
When we wrote the text for Happy Birthday, Free Gaza, our wonderful video producer, Paola, asked if she could design a video tribute to Free Gaza. It is here.
Many of you have also sent birthday wishes to us as we get ready to sail again in the fall. To all of you… thank you. None of this could have been done without the support from around the world. Below are just some of the birthday wishes.
Happy Birthday Free Gaza. I pray the next ships make it and bring joy blowing in the winds to greet the ships from the wonderful Gazans. Georgianne, California
Happy birthday. my hopes for the end of the blockade of Gaza. Wafa, Palestine
Happy 2nd Anniversary from the Sabra Shatila Foundation, the Palestine Civil Rights Campaign and all who salute what you have achieved on the behalf of all people of good will…’Sail on, Sail on, oh boats of resistance and may Allah decree that never shall ye trim your sails against the dark winds.’……….Mabrouk! Franklin, Lebanon
NEVER give up. This siege MUST BE BROKEN and you will see, IT WILL BE BROKEN.
FREE GAZA !!!!! Ingrid, Italy
Mabruk to you all. You are awesome. It all is. Brilliant. Happy B-Day, Love Ann, New York
It isn’t just Gaza that you creative and brave people have begun to free. You have also freed the millions who have been watching Israel’s abuse of the Palestinians of Gaza and feeling helpless because they could think of nothing they could do to make things better. If we can’t sail with you on a Free Gaza boat, we can help fund and support you in myriad other ways. Thanks. Don, California
Happy Birthday Free Gaza. Mairead, Ireland
Happy 2nd anniversary. Keep up the wonderful work. We are all so proud of you !

Celebrate what we could. Overcome what we could not. David, Washington
Go!ddess Bless You all. Two years ago you sailed into Gaza, alerting the world to the absolute moral imperative for every civilized human being to say NO MORE to tyranny and state terrorism, bullying and lies. You who sailed to see a free Gaza told the rest of us, we all must take a stand for the dignity and freedom, the full human rights, of all the Palestinian people, and all peoples everywhere. Steve, California
Happy Birthday and may you go from strength to strength. Viva Free Gaza! The end is always the beginning. Gloria, UK
Happy Birthday Free Gaza. Well done for keeping going with the most just campaign on the planet. I will keep supporting and doing what I can to keep the campaign and the plight of the Palestinians up there. Always on your side. Joe, Ireland
Happy Birthday, all our love. Free Gaza is much more that what you do, it is in its spirit pure , loving, extreme well-considered, and highly intelligent.
