HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Hilo resident remains in a jail in Athens, Greece on Monday.
Doctor Carol Murray is part of a group of activists that are being detained in a Greek port.
According to Murray's friends, they were reportedly trying to defy Israel's sea blockade of Gaza.
When Greece stopped the plans, the group of activists held a demonstration in front of the U.S. Embassy.
Murray's friends are asking people to contact the U.S. State Department to pressure Greece to release the Americans.
