Sunday 12th October 2008 at the Library Theatre Sheffield
In August this year two small boats the "Free Gaza" and the "Liberty" with 44 ordinary people on board succeeded in breaking the Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip.
Hedy Epstein an octogenarian survivor of the Third Reich, a campaigner for human rights and ardent opponent of Zionism, speaks of her experiences opposing the apartheid Israeli state and her involvement with the Free Gaza campaign's 240 mile voyages from Cyprus to Gaza.
In her talk Hedy Epstein references this map showing the shrinking of Palestinian land since 1946.

Musheir and the Free Gaza Campaign were welcomed with this song from Tony.
