Through Freedom Flotillas and other naval missions, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) brings international attention to the suffering and resistance of Palestinians. The 2018 Gaza Flotilla was an initiative of the FFC and was composed of civil society organizations and campaigns from many countries. It challenged the illegal and inhumane Israeli blockade of Gaza. FFC is committed to continuing the struggle until the blockade is unconditionally lifted and the Palestinian people everywhere regain their full rights.
A 2018 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the US Campaign as part of the 2018 Gaza Freedom Flotilla. The US campaign joined other national campaigns in Australia, Canada, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey to purchase boats and sail to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza in the summer of 2018.
