About 40 people gathered outside the Visitor’s Information Centre on the Inner Harbour on Saturday to support an international humanitarian flotilla to Gaza.

Victoria’s Kevin Neish is taking part again in the flotilla, which is expected to sail this week. Several ships, with hundreds of people from around the world, are aiming to provide thousands of tonnes of humanitarian aid to people living on the Hamas-controlled strip of coastal land bounded by Israel and Egypt.
