The Handala Sets Sail

The Freedom Flotilla is sailing again! #ForTheChildrenOfGaza

Our 2023 boat started its voyage in Kristiansund, Norway, in early April 2023, thanks to our friends and partners at Ship to Gaza Norway and Palestinakomiteen i Norge. The boat was named at a ceremony in Bergen on April 17, by Fauzia Hussain-Wiik, Bergen head of Landsorganisasjonen i Norge (LO), the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions. The boat is called Handala in honour of the emblematic Palestinian refugee child who yearns to return to a free Palestine.
