Activists Adam Shapiro and Huwaida Arraf shed light on the Free Gaza Movement.

Dubai School Of Government Video;  October 6, 2010
This event highlighted a group of international civilian activists who took measures on their own to try and force an end to the siege of Gaza. It also shed light on the Free Gaza Movement, which coordinated the largest international effort so to break the blockade—the Freedom Flotilla, which culminated in a highly-publicized confrontation on the high seas on 31 May, 2010. Adam Shapiro and Huwaida Arraf invited attendees at the talk to help raise awareness through non-violent methods, and to facilitate discussion about Gaza and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories at leading universities and other institutions in order to mobilize people into action.
