'Thousands' of Turks mark Mavi Marmara anniversary

'Thousands' of Turks marked the anniversary of the attempt by the IHH terror group to run Israel's legal blockade of Gaza on Monday night, according to Iran's PressTV.
This was an emotional demonstration.

Carrying torches in their hands thousands walked through central Istanbul to mark the one year anniversary of an Israeli attack against an international aid flotilla in which nine Turkish activists were killed.

The second aid flotilla was aiming to set sail tonight, it has however been delayed by a few weeks, which is why activists and their supporters have gathered here on the eve of the anniversary of last year's mission to remember those who died.

Natural sound... revenge revenge this woman shouted.

Earlier in the day, activists who plan to sail to Gaza on the second freedom flotilla echoed the sentiment of Turkey's foreign ministry at a press conference held onboard the Mavi Marmara.

And when asked if they were worried about the possibility of a second attack, a defiant response followed by the Turkish charity that is organizing the mission.

The second flotilla will again be lead by the Mavi Marmara, and is to include 15 ships from the US, Canada and European countries with hundreds of activists from around the world. Their aim to deliver aid to Palestinians who still live in abject poverty and to shine a light on Palestinian rights.
Something tells me they won't find many 'Palestinians' living in abject poverty in Gaza except those who oppose Hamas who won't get any of the aid anyway.

What could go wrong?
