The significance of the success of the Viva Palestina aid convoy in reaching  
Gaza cannot be overstated. Not since the Spanish Civil War has such an  
undertaken been attempted, much less succeeded, in solidarity with an oppressed  
people. The logistical difficulties alone presented by 110 vehicles and 250  
volunteers leaving London to travel 5000 miles through Europe and North Africa,  
carrying over a million pounds in humanitarian aid, having to negotiate a  
veritable diplomatic minefield in the process, militated heavily against the  
convoy ever reaching its destination, and certainly not in one piece.
