Road to Hope (previously known as Life Line 5 to Gaza LL5) is an independent, temporary collective of experienced international convoy and flotilla members, peace and non-violence activists, members of NGOs acting in a personal capacity, and many others from a broad range of backgrounds, countries and different organisations.
We are normal people, humanitarians, with one common aim of contributing to the world-wide effort to break the siege and blockade of Gaza by bringing practical aid to its people, alongside highlighting the plight of all Palestinians around the world, whether in diaspora among middle east and western countries, denied their rights and citizenships or subjected to occupation, oppression, imprisonment, collective punishment, apartheid and ethnic cleansing by, bravely, continuing their cultured, highly educated way of life in Palestine and Israel.
Road to Hope is just one small project of many in this field. However, it has its own particular flavour: experienced convoyers with a passion to succeed for the broadest base of Palestinians possible. We are unaffiliated to any political organisations and have no single faith bias. Instead, refreshingly, we welcome people of all political backgrounds and religious leanings; yet we are subjective by not condoning the kinds of extremism that lead to facism, racism, homophobia, islamophobia, anti-semitism in its true sense, sexism and the like.
The way we implement this subjectivity is through a collective vetting process, built around our understanding of the strains of being on the road in extreme conditions, and of trying to achieve a positive result for Palestinians of all hues. All potential participants will be asked to attend a training weekend prior to departure, which will help them recognise whether our venture is appropriate for them or not..
