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.
