Jaffa based activists gathered at the city's historical clock tower square to protest the interception of the Women's Boat to Gaza. The Zaytouna-Oliva left Barcelona with female activists from all over the world intending to break the decade long blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip by Israel. The Israeli navy stopped the Zaytouna on Wednesday evening, detaining the women on board and rerouting them to the port of Ashdod. In the meantime, Israel launched air strikes against the Gaza Strip. Among the protesters in Jaffa was Yehudit Ilani, who sailed on the Zaytouna in the first leg of the journey, from Barcelona to Italy. The protesters called for the immediate release of the women on board the Zaytouna and to lift the ongoing Israeli siege of Gaza.

About 100 people participated in a demonstration at the historic clock tower square in Jaffa, callng for the release of Darin Tatur. Tatur, a Palestinian woman from the Galilee, was arrested last October for a poem she wrote, "rise, my people, rise."

The Jaffa demonstration was organized by local activists, and Tatur's father and uncle were also in attendance. Israeli Jewish passers by hurled racist insults at protesters.
