The Viva Palestina convoy
by Yvonne Ridley

"....We cannot stop Gordon Brown from helping to arm the fourth largest army in the world, a military force which is currently being investigated for war crimes following the deaths of more than 1400 civilians.
But we can help repair the view the outside world holds on what it is to be British.
And just a few days ago 300 citizens, waving their Union Jacks, rolled in to Gaza to show the people of Palestine the real face of Britain.
What we did and what we achieved was done in the name of millions across the world.
The welcoming smiles on the faces of the Palestinians made me proud to be part of the Viva Palestina convoy, proud of every man and woman on that convoy.
And that is something Gordon Brown will never be able to experience about his own convoys to the Middle East. Perhaps it is he who needs a lesson in what it is to be British.
Now pass me that Union Jack, please. Viva Palestina!"
