In a Democracy Now! exclusive, we bring you a sneak preview of previously unseen raw footage from the Mavi Marmara that will be formally released at a press conference at the United Nations later in the day. The footage shows the mood and the activities onboard the Mavi Marmara in the time leading up to the attack, and the immediate reaction of the passengers during the attack. We are joined by filmmaker and activist Iara Lee, one of the few Americans on the Mavi Marmara ship. Her equipment was confiscated, but she managed to smuggle out an hour’s worth of footage. [includes rush transcript]

The Gaza Freedom Flotilla: Framing the Narrative

They called it “Operation Sea Breeze.” Despite the pleasant-sounding name, Israel’s violent commando raid on a flotilla of humanitarian aid ships, which left nine civilians dead, has sparked international outrage. The raid occurred in the early-morning hours of May 31, as the six vessels laden with humanitarian aid were still in international waters, bound for Gaza, where 1.5 million Palestinian residents are in their third year of an Israeli-imposed blockade. Israel has, from the outset, sought to limit the debate over the attack, and to control the images.

Slingshots VS Helicopters: Smuggled footage from Mavi Marmara Part 1

June 10, 2010 — http://www.culturesofresistance.org/
On the night of Sunday, May 30, showing a terrifying disregard for human life, Israeli naval forces surrounded and boarded ships sailing to bring humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. On the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, Israeli commandos opened fire on civilian passengers, killing at least 9 passengers and wounding dozens more. Others are still missing. The final death toll is yet to be determined. Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee was aboard the besieged ship and has since returned home safely.

Despite the Israeli government’s thorough efforts to confiscate all footage taken during the attack, Iara Lee was able to retain some of her recordings. Above is 15 minutes of footage from the moments leading up to and during the Israeli commandos’ assault on the Mavi Marmara.

  4. why America helping Afghanistan? not for the love of the people or for Al quida. Because that country is rich with many mineral deposits.like in IRAQ oil. in Sri lanka we were fighting for 30+years with terrorist ,the Americans or the any other Allys never wanted to come to sri lanka,reason is because we don’t have oil or rich minerals like other two country’s.
    after we finish the terrorist now they are talking about human rights?

  12. The camera, the microphone, the keyboard and the Internet remain the ultimate peace activist weapons against totalitarianism.

    All serious peace activists should be trained in how to prevent the agents of totalitarian regimes from controlling the information we see and hear.
