ABOUT ANN WRIGHT
Ann is a retired US Army Colonel and former US diplomat who resigned from the US government in 2003 in opposition to the war in Iraq. A deeply committed peace activist, Ann became active in Palestinian solidarity issues after visiting Gaza in 2009 after the 27-day Israeli war on Gaza, worked with CODEPINK Women for Peace to bring six groups to Gaza in 2009, and helped organize the Gaza Freedom March in December 2009 that brought 1350 persons from 40 countries to Cairo in solidarity with Gaza.
She has sailed on three of the more than two dozen Gaza flotillas–including the most recent 2016 women’s boat–carrying humanitarian aid and construction materials to challenge Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Ann will present an update on deteriorating conditions in Gaza and efforts to challenge Israel’s occupation of the West Bank.
Join us to hear from Ann about her experience on several previous Freedom Flotillas (2010, 2011, 2015, & 2016) and the financial needs of this year’s initiative.
