Studio Guests: Sylvia Hale, Former NSW Member of the Legislative Council for the Greens - and Vivienne Porzsolt, from Jews Against Occupation. They are two of the four Australians who will join other international human rights activists on the second Free Gaza Flotilla that will leave in the third week of June.

A year ago Israeli soldiers attacked Turkish ship the Mavi Marmara, and other vessels from the first Free Gaza Movement Flotilla, in International waters, killing nine people and detaining over 400.

We review the situation in Gaza, as outlined in an interview on the Third Degree last year with Palestinian Activist Rihab Charida. And hear a short audio piece from the Aida Refugee Camp in the West Bank, by Mohammad Qassim called 'The Day I Got Shot', from the Radio Lajee project.
