Cynthia McKinney Returns Home -
Released After 6 Days in Israeli Prison

Yesterday Cynthia McKinney returned after 6 days in an Israeli prison. Here crime? Attempting to deliver medical supplies and toys - crayons, water colors and coloring books, to the people of Gaza.

The following is a collection of videos of her return. (She should have had a big crowd welcoming her as a true hero! I guess they were all at Michael Jackson's funeral...). It begins with a news report from The Global Report telling the circumstances of her arrest followed by a second report from the same source regarding, U.N. Human Rights Investigator, Richard Falk's declaration that the seizure of the ship was a crime and the situation in Gaza is a continuing Human Rights violation. After that is a phone call Cynthia made to describing the arrest and treatment under the Israeli Navy and prison guards. The conclusion is an interview Cynthia gave with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now.
