The MV Mavi Marmara was one of several vessels loaded with humanitarian aid that attempted to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza in 2010. A case has been started at the International Criminal Court, in which a fundamental issue (separate from the killings by the Israelis of 10 people on board) is whether people should be allowed to protest on the high seas, as the passengers on the ships of the flotilla were doing, in part. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/does-the-citizen-have-the-right-to-protest-on-the-high-seas Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
