The Israeli Attack on the Mavi Marmara // Raw Footage Smuggled Out

(for original Plutonian Mac post, click here)

Israel has tried to propagandize their bloody attack on the Mavi Marmara as self-defense against terrorists and anti-Semitic brutes. Even before boarding, they began jamming all communications, and as soon as they came aboard, they systematically destroyed or confiscated (read stole) any and all media equipment, cameras, videos, cell-phones, lap-tops, Blackberries and on and on that they could find in a massive effort to engineer the storyline of the events unfolding. However, they failed to get all the documented evidence, including this hour plus raw footage shot by San Francisco-based Cultures of Resistance.

The overriding reality here is that if you are standing for Truth and Justice, then you have nothing to hide. The evidence will support you, not destroy you. The fact that the Israeli Defense Force and government was and is afraid of all the evidence, and have actually been contriving "evidence" puts them on the wrong side of integrity. These actions are actually a self-indictment that they do have something to hide, that they have committed crimes.

CulturesofResistance -- June 11, 2010 -- To DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEO :

On the night of Sunday, May 30, showing a terrifying disregard for human life, Israeli naval forces surrounded and boarded ships sailing to bring humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. On the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, Israeli commandos opened fire on civilian passengers, killing at least 9 passengers and wounding dozens more. Others are still missing. The final death toll is yet to be determined. Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee was aboard the besieged ship and has since returned home safely.

Despite the Israeli government's thorough efforts to confiscate all footage taken during the attack, Iara Lee was able to retain some of her recordings. Above is raw footage from the moments leading up to and during the Israeli commandos' assault on the Mavi Marmara.
