    RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Youth groups in Palestine have launched Facebook pages calling for a sit-in Friday to protest statements by UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon urging to thwart the Freedom Flotilla II set to deliver aid to Gaza 20 June.

    “We will emerge tomorrow to demand that Ban Ki-moon retract these dangerous statements and promptly apologize to the Palestinian people and the families of those killed on the Freedom Flotilla. We also say no to providing a green light by official and legal international mechanisms to attack any ships or sea convoys that come to welcome the breaking of the siege on the Palestinians,” the group said.

    Ki-moon had called on relevant governments to use their influence to see that such ships are not deployed.

    Palestinians believe that such statements by the UN chief give cover for the Israeli occupation to attack the aid ships.

    Ki Moon is spot on about these flotillas.
