Ireland & Scotland to Palestine!!!

I want to bring attention to another group attempting to "Break the Siege" in Gaza. They began in Scotland and now the Irish team are travelling through the Island of Ireland, then onward. See map above. This is a brilliant organisation and could use your support or at least some online publicity. I believe it is very important to publicize ALL groups attempting to break the siege on Gaza. The Hope convoy just broke the siege and have now returned home and they barely had any news coverage, it was disgraceful. So now we have another brave group bringing aid to desperate people in Gaza to save lives. You can follow their trip HERE. Give them your support, blog this please!

Pathways to Palestine / Slí Phalaistín is an initiative that began organizing in response to the blockade of Gaza

Medical Aid for Palestinians
Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health of Palestinians (especially in conditions of occupation, displacement or exile) based on principles of self-determination and social justice. The organisation has been working in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) for almost 20 years.

The Cyclists Team:
Patrick McCauley (Glasgow Caledonian/Ireland)

On the road to Derry:

The success of the Pathways to Palestine project is made possible with the aid of online donations. While the majority of our fundraising takes place through real-world events, we ask if you have the time and resources to make a donation to Pathways to Palestine that you consider contributing online HERE

Own A Part Of The Journey
No amount is too small. To encourage donations P2P will be ‘selling’ their 4000 mile journey. One mile ‘costs’ €25 or £20, and once you ‘buy’ your mile (=1.6km) you will receive an email detailing its actual location. Thanks to GPS and web technology, once your mile has been completed by our cyclists you will receive confirmation via an automatic email. Donate to using this email account at Paypal donations@pathwaystopalestine.com or you visit their site Pathways To Palestine to use the paypal button for quick donations or to buy your mile for Palestine!
