Turkish workers make repairs to the Mavi Mamara on Monday May 30, 2011.

Istanbul- The Turkish aid organization IHH has organized a demonstration to mark the one year anniversary of the Gaza flotilla crisis between Turkey and Israel for tonight in Istanbul.

A few hours ago, a press conference was held aboard the Mavi Marmara, which is currently docked in Istanbul. The boat is preparing to make another attempt to break the blockade of Gaza in mid-June.

I am doing a small photo-essay on the event for SETimes.com that I’ll post a link to once its up.
