"The Limasol Port Authority, which controls Larnaca as well, sent their inspector to Larnaca with a letter saying that the boat failed inspection before he arrived in Larnaca (Cyprus) to do the inspection.

Reuters is doing the story now and saying that we were prevented from leaving due to Cypriot authorities. Please report that our voyage is interfered with and have interested journalists contact the Limasol authorities and ask them why the are purposely delaying us from our peaceful mission." - Cynthia McKinney.

Black Agenda Report has reported on United States African-American heroine and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney's DIGNITY mission along with other heroic citizens to bring relief to Gaza and attention to the human rights situation in Occupied Palestine.

When the Free Gaza Movement attempted to send a boatload of supplies to Gaza last December, the Israeli Navy rammed the vessel, the Dignity, almost sinking it. This week, activists will send two boats on the voyage from Cyprus to Gaza, carrying cement, toys and 38 passengers, among them former U.S. Rep. Cynthia Mckinney, who was also aboard the Dignity. Ms. McKinney sent a letter to President Obama, filling him in on the Gaza mission. -- B.A.R.
