New footage from the Mavi Marmara show Israel's brutal attack on human rights activists

Dear friends,

Film maker Iara Lee was aboard the Mavi Marmara and filming prior and during the attack by the Israeli military on the Gaza Flotilla. She was able to retain the footage, despite attempts by the Israeli military to confiscate all footage.

Below is a 14 minute version of her footage she shot on the Mavi Marmara, as well as the full 1 hour unedited footage. You can also visit her website for more information on the film footage and what happened on the Mavi Marmara (

Please be aware the footage contains upsetting images.

I have also inlcuded a link below to the Democracy Now interview with Lee, where she discusses what happened on the boat, as well the op-ed article written by Lee for the San Fransciso Chronical

in solidarity,
