Occupy Boston activists “storm” Israeli consulate to protest Gaza siege

Occupy Boston activists “stormed” the Israeli consulate in Beantown Nov. 5 in protest of the Gaza blockade. The activists—chanting “Occupy Wall Street not Palestine”—were also protesting the interception of the Gaza-bound “Freedom Waves” flotilla by Israeli naval forces the day before. Israel says it has started deportation of 22 detained on the two-ship flotilla, including Greek crew members. The Electronic Intifada website provided a live map, which followed the ships’ course after they departed the Turkish port of Fethiye on Nov. 2, indicating that the vessels were still in international waters when they were intercepted. The Israeli military also admitted that the interception happened in international water. (Tripoli Post, Nov. 7; YNet, Nov. 5)
