I point that should have been brought up re the MV Rachie Corrie is that it was registered with a flag of convenience. It also has been reported that the vessel carried 6 Malaysian 'crew' as well as the 8 activists. Was the Rachel Corrie flying a flag of convenience to evade Irish labour law and pay slave wages to the Malaysian crew? Very simple question, what were they being paid? In all the commentary re the Rachel Corrie it appears that the Malaysians were just workers, not activists, so the question remains were the Irish Free Gaza movement involved in human exploitation?
