Submit Your Song for Gaza's Ark!

From our member group 14 Friends of Palestine- Marin. You can follow the initiative @GazaArk

Gaza’s Ark is having a song contest! Submit your songs by February 1, 2013! 

We are seeking original songs to use to promote Gaza's Ark, which seeks to sail from Palestine to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza. Whereas previous attempts to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza have been made by trying to sail boats from international waters into Gaza, Gaza’s Ark will try to break the blockade from the inside out, carrying goods to export. A boat will be refurbished by Palestinian shipbuilders in Gaza and stocked with Palestinian goods and products, then sail through international waters with both Palestinians and internationals on board. 

The goal is to challenge the ongoing, illegal Israeli blockade and focus worldwide attention on the situation in Gaza and the complicity of the governments that support it or look the other way. You can find more information at

Feel free to let your creative genes go wild! 
The winning song will be used as the Gaza’s Ark theme song, and be promoted widely by the project.
