Paki Wieland, a veteran activist devoted to human rights causes, has volunteered to join the international flotilla attempting to break the Israeli sea blockade of the Gaza strip. Nine boats leaving from various countries will sail to Gaza in the coming weeks. Paki's boat, with 50 volunteers from the United States, is scheduled to leave from Athens, Greece. At a gathering of her supporters and well-wishers in rural Conway, Massachusetts, Paki discusses her reasons for going to Gaza, and what her expectations are.
