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 WBAIX.org 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.
