Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney hinted that she would return to the Gaza Strip, saying she is “committed to correcting the injustice”.
Back from a harrowing journey to the Palestinian territories, former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney sits down with Press TV to expound on why she made her voyage.
McKinney, accompanied with 20 other activists, traveled aboard a boat named Spirit of Humanity on a journey to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The Israeli Navy, however, intercepted the ship and took the former US presidential candidate along with all members of the high-profile ‘Gaza 21’ group into custody on June 30.
In an exclusive interview with Press TV correspondent Colin Campbell in Washington, McKinney said she and her fellow humanitarian relief workers were held illegally at Givon prison in Israel and were told to make false confessions.
“We were imprisoned. We were forced to stay in prison. They told us to say that we had violated the laws. We violated no laws,” she said.
