Spanish activists occupy their embassy in Greece adding pressure to allow the Freedom Flotilla II to sail

Pro-Palestinian activists from an international flotilla banned from setting sail for Gaza by Greek authorities told AFP Tuesday they had occupied the Spanish Embassy in Athens.

Thirty mainly Spanish activists had met with their ambassador to ask Madrid to put pressure on Greece to allow them to sail and had "decided to occupy the rooms," one of the protesters, who called himself Santiago, told AFP by telephone.
