U.S. Boat to Gaza announces: Application Process Now Open

Hurry -- Registration for the "Audacity of Hope" will close after 30 DAYS.
TO BE A PASSENGER ON THE U.S. BOAT TO GAZA:
· You must have reached your 21st birthday or be legally emancipated on or before March 31, 2011.
· You must be prepared to go without any medications if you are detained.
· The schedule is tentative and may change, due to weather and unexpected conditions.
· You must be prepared to be away from home at least 10 days and possibly up to several weeks.
· You must be aware that if you are detained, the likelihood is that you will not be allowed to enter Israel for 10 years.
· You accept principles of non-violent resistance and will receive specific training before sailing.
· You will be responsible for your own airfare and all expenses up to and after the boat journey, including penalties if you change your flight reservations.
· Because of the seriousness of this voyage, US TO GAZA needs to find out as much as possible about you, so please be forthcoming in completing your application.
· You must be willing and able to attend an orientation session prior to departure.
· Please understand that space aboard the U.S. Boat to Gaza will be extremely limited. Attention will be given to creating a diverse and representative team to sail to break the blockade of Gaza.
