(GAZA STRIP ISM) - Palestinian youth will march today in Gaza to demand that the United Nations and international community protect the "Freedom Waves to Gaza" flotilla against Israeli attacks.

"I support the flotilla because Israel says it's no longer occupying Gaza," said Rana Baker, a 20-year-old business administration student at Islamic University. "This would include the sea and freedom of movement. But this is not true, and the flotilla will once again prove this and confront a siege illegally imposed upon a mostly-civilian population."

The gathering will begin in Gaza's Haidar Abdel Shafi Square at 12:30 pm.

The youth will march by the nearby United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) building before holding a press conference in the Gaza Seaport.

"We support these boats," said Hussien Amody, a 19-year-old computer engineering student at Al-Azhar University. "We want to prevent any Israeli attacks and break this illegal blockade."

The demonstration will coincide with a 12:30 pm rally in Ramallah's Manarah Square.

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian-led non-violent resistance movement committed to ending Israel's illegal occupation of Palestinian land. We call for full compliance with all relevant UN resolutions and international law.
