this sunday in toronto: firsthand account of israel's capture of gaza-bound boat

This Sunday, folks in Toronto will have a great opportunity to hear a firsthand account of the arrest and abduction of the crew of the Tahrir, the Canadian boat that tried to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, part of last year's Freedom Flotilla. Ehab Lotayef, a Montreal engineer, and David Heap, an academic and activist from London, Ontario, will speak about their experiences on the boat and in an Israeli jail.

I wish I could attend! I've never heard my friend David speak publicly about this, although I do read every post on his blog. If you're in Toronto this weekend, this is sure to be a fascinating event.

When: Sunday, March 25, 1:00 p.m.

Where: Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street, Toronto

Admission: $10 or pay what you can.

So sorry you can't join us Laura! There has been a nibble regarding a west-GTA / Mississauga event for CBG, will let you know if that pans out. Meanwhile, your readers in the Ottawa area may be interested to know that Ehab is presenting there on Wednesday March 28:

Thanks, David. Unfortunately right now it doesn't much matter when events are for me. Working two jobs and going to school, including working every weekend, there's not much time left. One day... one day.:)

I hope it's a great one this Sunday. Thanks for keeping the spirit of The Tahrir alive.
