Kevin Neish, activist with Freedom Flotilla III to Gaza, for Gorilla Radio July 15 2015

Kevin Neish is a retired engineer with a long history of human rights activism.  He speaks of his efforts to help Liliany Obando, a union organizer held for 3 years without charge in a prison in Columbia, and more recently what it was like to experience Swedish society for a month while waiting for the Marianne av Goteborg to sail to Gaza.  In the second half, Kevin details the journey from Sweden through many European ports, to be infiltrated by the Israeli Occupation Forces while in International waters near Egypt.  The Marianne’s international crew had hoped to deliver some solar panels to the Gazans, and to leave the Marianne for them to use as a fishing vessel (since the Israelis regularly steal their fishing boats), but instead they ended up in prison.  Kevin also survived the Mavi Marmara attack during the first flotilla attempt, and is now considering how to support the Freedom Flotilla IV.  Hear more from Kevin at The Voice of Palestine.
