The from London to has been attacked. Members injured & hospitalised, also arrested, including a Malaysian student. This was because the convoy members protested against the Egyptian government's refusal to allow some 50 trucks into Gaza. that the convoy complied with all of Egypt's demands before this.
I spoke to via telephone Wed, 6th Jan at 7.36 am (M'sian time) & he said there was "massive violence" by the Egyptian police. Stones were thrown, beatings, tear gas. Some members have been hospitalised & some arrested. Those arrested include a Malaysian student studying in the UK. Currently 10 Turkish MPs are negotiating with top Egyptian officials. has just proven to the world that there is indeed a siege on Gaza.
Viva Palestina Malaysia is very concerned for our fellow Malaysians & all the rest in the convoy. Malaysia has 9 vehicles carrying aid to the people of Gaza.
VPM will be handing over a memorandum to the Egyptian ambassador this afternoon expressing our outrage at this latest incident and demanding that the Egyptian government ensures the safety of the convoy and the quick delivery of badly needed aid.
VPM calls on all our friends to join us this afternoon when we hand over the memo and bring about a conclusion to this journey which began a month ago over thousands of miles.
