The situation in Gaza is one of critical importance, and is sadly largely far from the corporate media’s radar. The 1.7 million Palestinians locked under blockade, occupation, and now darkness, in the Gaza Strip suffer from an endless list of preventable–and dangerous– injustices, and have been so suffering for years, at least since 2007.
Starting November 26, 2013, I will be speaking on the reality of life in Gaza, including the dangers posed to fishers, farmers (and anyone in the border regions), the numerous and layered aspects of the blockade on Gaza, and the various Israeli wars waged upon the Palestinians of Gaza.
See below for the thus-confirmed dates of my British Columbia and western USA speaking tour. I will be updating this post as dates become confirmed. Please share widely and encourage people you know to get informed about Gaza, one of the greatest manufactured (and preventable) crises and on-going creeping genocides in the world.
