Iara Lee is brilliant. Current director for Cultures of Resistance, Lee has made it her life mission to secure a better future for humanity. In one of her most recent endeavors, Lee joined the Freedom Flotilla in the hopes of breaking Israel’s oppressive siege of the Gaza Strip. Aboard the Mavi Marmara, she witnessed catastrophe as trigger-happy Israeli soldiers raided the ship and killed at least nine people. Her camera crew went to work, and even though most of her equipment was destroyed or confiscated by Israeli Defense Forces, she managed to conceal a certain number of memory chips that contained important footage of the attack.
The following video includes raw unedited footage of Israel’s raid of the Freedom Flotilla. This film was formally released to the United Nations on June 10 at their headquarters in New York.
