Paul Murphy MEP gives press conference about his abduction and imprisonment by Israel

Having been released after seven days of illegal imprisonment by the Israeli regime last Friday, 11 November, Paul Murphy MEP gave a press conference yesterday detailing his experiences and that of other activists from the ‘Freedom Waves’ flotilla to Gaza.

Paul and the other activists were illegally abducted in an act of piracy by the Israeli navy in international waters on 4 November. The ‘Freedom Waves’ flotilla was the third recent attempt to break the Israeli state’s naval blockade of Gaza and deliver humanitarian aid.

The flotilla also aimed to draw attention to the terrible suffering of the Palestinian masses at the hands of the Israeli regime and their on-going struggle for self-determination.
