Real News reporter Dimitri Lascaris on board the Al Awda (The Return) continues his “freedom” series by talking to a candidate of Sweden’s Feminist Party and one of the flotilla’s boat captains about their participation in the effort to break the Gaza blockade.

Swedish feminist Oldoz Javidi says she is keen to take some peaceful “action” in support of the people of Gaza.

“I am interested in making actual changes. I’m not interested in a political career,” she says.

Jens Marklund, Swedish skipper of The Freedom, says: “A man has got to do something for refugees all over the world … and the Palestinian situation seems to be one of the worst at the moment.”

Asia Pacific Report, through the Pacific Media Centre, is sharing Gaza Freedom Flotilla coverage with Kia Ora Gaza and Scoop Media. New Zealander Mike Treen is on board Al Awda.
