New Delhi: Asian People's Solidarity for Palestine (APSP) Tuesday said that 500 civil resisters from 17 Asian countries will join a caravan from India and march through 18 cities of Pakistan, Iran and Turkey "to break the siege of Gaza" through the sea route in December.

The team plans to be in Gaza Dec 27 which will mark the second anniversary of Israel's launch of the Gaza War in 2008, said APSP, an alliance of peoples' organisations, social movements, trade unions and civil society institutions of Asia.

"Palestine is emerging as a central geo-political issue and we resist the ethnic cleansing of Palestine…In view of Israel's ongoing collective punishment of Palestinians through illegal occupation and siege of Gaza, we started this movement," secretary of New Trade Union Initiative Gautam Mody told reporters here.

Asia coordination committee's representative Feroze Mithiborwala said: "Friends of the group in foreign countries are putting together money to buy a ship. We will set sail from a Mediterranean port but for security reasons I cannot reveal the port name. We are doing this to create a larger impact of the struggle."

T.A. Rahmani of the Muslim Political Council of India said that the solidarity caravan to start from India in December is in support of the Palestine movement.

India Lifeline to Gaza, a branch of APSP, will hold a conference and a flag off programme here Dec 2.

Organisers of Asia to Gaza solidarity caravan said that the movement is multi-cultural and multi-religious and is a non-religious struggle for peace. The movement is endorsed by 51 organisations and 57 individuals.

The caravan will carry relief material for the people of Gaza. It will cross into Pakistan at Wagah border checkpost where members of the Pakistan Solidarity for Gaza will join the caravan to Iran.

Public meetings will be held at various locations in cities and countries through which the caravan will pass, organisers said.
