Fotilla heads to Gaza

No, it's not some forgotten news that has somehow resurfaced at the wrong date, no flashback here but a flash forward instead: two of the boats of the previous failed attempt have just left Turkish ports in direction to Gaza. Israel and Egypt together keep the huge refugee camp under siege.

The two boats are the Irish ship MV Saoirse and the Canadian ship Tahrir.

Video report from Democracy Now! follows:

Raw footage from the ships (they show cargo of medicines and such):
