Cycling-activists to tour Marmara for Palestine
Activists from a cycling group are hitting the roads with their bicycles for the fourth time for Palestinians.
Palestine, MiddleEast, Turkey 24.10.2012

Members of the Britain-based charity group Cycling4Gaza are organizing a cycling tour to raise funds for health projects they are planning for Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. The group of 35 activists from various countries is going to cycle around the Sea of Marmara in Turkey.

The group explained they launched such a project to support the Palestinian people, and invited Turkish activists to join the cycling tour around the Sea of Marmara. The cyclists will start pedaling for Free Palestine on Thursday 25 October in Bandırma and ride through Çanakkale, Tekirdağ and will end the three-day tour at Blue Mosque in Istanbul on 27 October.


Cycling4Gaza was formed in the wake of 2009 Cast Lead operation by a group of youngsters in order to attract attention to the Israeli embargo on Gaza and raise awareness around the issue. Group members organize cycling tours in different parts of the world and this year they are cycling to raise funds for health projects of Britain-based charity MAP-Medical Aid for Palestinians in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.

Founded in the aftermath of Sabra and Shatila massacres, MAP-Medical Aid for Palestinians provides health assistance to Palestinians in refugee camps and in the Gaza Strip. Maternal and child health, equipment to hospitals, and first aid training are some of the projects the medical organization is planning to initiate in Lebanon.
