https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_Pink

Code Pink: Women for Peace is a left-wing NGO that describes itself as a "grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities". ...

Code Pink has organized more than seven delegations to Gaza, some of them at the invitation of the United Nations.

According to Al Jazeera correspondent Mina Harballou, who was aboard the Zaytouna heading to break the siege on the Gaza Strip: “When Zaytouna was intercepted from the west of Israel at around 4pm there were two warships one on the right and the other on the left of the boat.” ... She said three more Israeli naval ships surrounded the Zaytouna and ordered its captain, Ann Wright, to redirect its course. Wright refused saying the boat was 33 miles from the coast of Gaza and therefore still within international waters. ... ( more ) ...
