In the village of Niâlinâs weekly protest against Israeli Occupation, protestors demonstrated their solidarity with those who participated in the Freedom Flotillaâs effort to end Israelâs siege on the Gaza Strip. Participants raised Turkish flags as well as flags of the countries of origin of many of the Flotillaâs activists in honour of those that were killed by Israeli forces. In their attempt to suppress the march, Israeli forces drowned the area in tear gas and set off sound bombs, resulting in the suffocation of many of the protestors. Nonetheless, participants stood their ground in respect for the Freedom Flotilla and the struggle to end Israeli Occupation. Click here to see the photo story on Stop the Wall’s flickr page.
