VIVA PALESTINA~LAST UPDATE FOR TODAY 3RD JANUARY


(new photos after post) I expect this will be the last update for today, unless something urgent happens. I hope they all get a good nights rest for the next battle in Egypt at Al Arish with Egyptian Security and "customs", which is always a severe headache. I remember what the Hope Convoy went through for days at the port. It's imperative the Viva convoy gets through quickly in order to make it to Rafah before Egypt closes the gate in two more days.
Update of definite news “mucks” (short for Mo Chara, which means friends in Irish) -flights r delayed till 4PM 2morrow. We were waiting for security clearance and got it. One plane will start taking 3 loads 2morrow at 4PM. That’s it for now.

Here are a few more photos to enjoy from the trip so far:

Thank you so much for these updates. I'm here several times a day, and elsewhere looking for news of these brave and dauntless activists. My thoughts and most positive energies and prayers are with you and those endeavoring to bring justice to these long suffering people. God bless you and may peace prevail, as I know it must.

Loving blessings from Saladin
