Join us to hear David Heap give his firsthand account of the Freedom Waves to Gaza which took place in November, when Irish and Canadian boats tried to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza.
A linguistics professor at the University of Western Ontario and long time Palestine solidarity activist, Heap was on board the Canadian boat, the Tahrir, when it was seized by the Israeli navy in international waters.
