Gaza has been under heavy blockade for most of the time since Hamas took power there in June 2007.
Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.
Nathalie held a press conference together with Durmus Aydin, Deputy President of IHH, following their tour of the ship accompanied by delivery of information on the flotilla campaign “Palestine Our Route, Humanitarian Aid Our Load”.
Cardone, sang her famous song Hasta Siempre which she originally sang for Che Guevara and the workers, this time for Palestinian people. She also mentioned that she would like to go to Palestine onboard by the flotilla which will embark on its journey on the 23rd of May.
Nathalie Cardone said “People of Israel were once praying for their freedom when they were locked in a ghetto in Germany. Now they are doing the same to the Palestinian people.
"They locked the Palestinians in behind the walls," she said.
“What Israel has been doing is a genocide, it is a crime against humanity. These 8 ships will be delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza. I wish these ships to be the last ones, the embargo should end now, as soon as possible”, Cardone also added.
Nathalie also referred to Prime Minister Erdogan as “the courageous leader”.
