Gaza flotilla: the Athens proposal

The Greek government has proposed to activists of the Freedom flotilla and Palestinian Authority to deliver itself the aids to the Palestinian population. Greece "proposes to undertake the transportation of humanitarian aid, with Greek ships or other appropriate manners, through existing channels," as requested by the UN, said in a statement the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Activists of the fleet, with ten ships, were critical of the Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, accusing him of having "sold the soul of Greece", after a Coast Guard vessel with its Greek edge of the masked gunmen intercepted, on Friday 1 July, the American ship "Audacity of Hope," that was trying to get into the open sea despite the prohibition to sail.
