Swedish Ship to Gaza express ‘grief and dismay’ at Greek authorities
The Swedish-based Ship to Gaza rights group on Monday expressed “grief and dismay” at Greece’s decision to block the humanitarian flotilla from sailing to the Palestinian territory. In an open letter to Greek Prime Minister Giorgios Papandreaou, the group said it was “with grief and dismay that we passengers and grass roots in the Swedish people’s movement Ship to Gaza received the decision of your government to block our ships from leaving Greek ports to go to Gaza.”
“We are aware of the pressure that your country has been under in recent days, and feel sadness for the Greek people and the difficulties that you are enduring at this particular moment,” the statement said, noting the country’s efforts to avoid defaulting on its loans. “Our mission is completely peaceful,” the group added. The group pointed to the fact that they could address Papandreaou in Swedish, as he himself had been forced to seek refuge in the country in the 1960’s, after a military regime was established in Greece.
