A wide group of Greek and Arab activists, held a meeting in the Greek capital Athens,was also attended by activists from other European countries, and discussed the steps they intend to do for organizing the travel of a group of ships of various sizes to the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Irish activist, Cueva Butterly, who had already participated in the last convoy of lifeline to Gaza , said that she came to Athens to attend the meeting and to coordinate the initiative of launching ships to Gaza, which is expected include Malaysian officials and many popular bodies from all over the world.

She added that the continuing siege on Gaza, means that the war is still going on, so we must work to break it.
