Angered activists sit-in at Rafah crossing in protest
An overnight sit in was staged by over 350 Egyptian activists on the Rafah border crossing in an attempt to break the siege on the Gazans

The convoy carried with them humanitarian aid to express solidarity with the besieged people however their late arrival at the crossing left little time for routine paper work before the closing of the border at 7 pm. Organizers were angered when Egyptian officials demanded passports for entry describing it as hampering the aid process since most of the convoy were only carrying the Egyptian IDs  

Activists world wide have been busy launching and preparing convoys to Gaza after the latest military massacre on the Freedom Flotilla in international waters viciously killed 20 activists and injured many prompting international outcries and condemnation
