Organizers of the US boat participating in the flotilla to Gaza said Friday afternoon that their boat, The Audacity of Hope, will attempt to leave the Greek harbor where is docked, despite attempts by Greek authorities to prevent their departure, they said through the organization's Twitter feed.

Passengers, organizers said, were preparing to "non-violently resist any efforts to stop the boat," saying moments later that the boat "is about to set sail."
