What exactly is the point of Alice Walker’s decision to participate in the “Freedom Flotilla II” (‘Alice Walker: Why I’m joining the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza’, 25 June)? She says that her ship, The Audacity of Hope, will carry only letters “expressing solidarity and love” for the people of Gaza. Does Ms Walker not realise that letters are not proscribed under the Israeli blockade?
