A flotilla of ships titled the "Viva Palestina" convoy will leave from London, Casablanca in Morroco and Doha in Qatar on September 18, according to an opinion article by George Galloway in Friday's edition of the British socialist daily the Morning Star.

The flotilla will seek to break Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Galloway states in the article that now that the siege on Gaza is being condemned by the EU, UN, many governments and every major international aid agency, "we are at a moment when pressure can be brought to bear as never before to frustrate Israel's moves to crush the Palestinians."
