International activists load boxes of medical supplies aboard a boat before setting sail for Gaza from the Cypriot port of Larnaca, Cyprus, Monday, Dec. 29, 2008. Free Gaza Group organizers said their boat ‘SS Dignity’ would defy an Israeli blockade of Gaza and ferry 16 activists and 3 tons of Cypriot-donated supplies to help treat the wounded from Israeli air attacks against targets in the Palestinian territory. Among the passengers is former U.S. congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and Cypriot lawmaker and surgeon Eleni Theocharous.
