“The International Solidarity Movement is shocked and deeply saddened by the killing of our friend and colleague Vittorio Arrigoni. Vik was an inspiring activist and generous soul. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts.”

Vitorio was pro-Palestinian activist who was kidnapped and murdered by a Salafi group in Gaza. He has been honored by Palestinians as a martyr along side Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall who were also martyred in Gaza in 2003.
