Pro-Palestine Flotilla Departs Copenhagen to ‘Break the Siege’ on Gaza (PHOTOS)

Four ships with the Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) are heading to the Gaza Strip in an effort to “break the siege” of the enclave, which the United Nations has long called illegal. Three of the ships departed Copenhagen, Denmark, on Monday and are expected to be joined by a fourth en route.
 
The journey is expected to take more than two months, as the ships will stop at several ports in Europe to hold demonstrations in support of the Great Return March, which began March 30 and saw more than 3,500 Palestinians shot by Israeli sniper fire. Those protests ended on May 15, a known to Palestinians as “Nakba day,” or “day of catastrophe,” but celebrated in Israel as its independence day.
