Nine brave Bristolians will be officially welcomed home to the city at the Council House this evening, after their 34-day, 4,000-mile aid trip to Gaza at Christmas.
The group delivered more than £20,000 of humanitarian, medical and educational aid, raised by the people of Bristol on January 6 – despite clashes with Egyptian authorities at the border.
Supported by Bristol City Council, the group included four vans and mini-buses and a 44-ton truck painted with Banksy-style murals of Bristol & Gaza on one side, and Wallace & Gromit on the other. The group joined the main UK Viva Palestina convoy in London on December 5 and 250 people of all denominations set off across Europe and the Middle East to Gaza.
Palestinian Ambassador to the UK, Professor Manuel Hassassian, will join the welcome, along with Gaza journalist Sameh Habeeb, the Founder, Chair and Editor– in-Chief of the Palestine Telegraph.
