Nancy Murray: Report on The Gaza Freedom March
December 27th marks the one-year anniversary of
Israel's invasion of The Gaza Strip. For 22 days at the turning of the
year, while many of us in the U.S recovered from our holidays and made
our resolutions, the residents of Gaza—half of them children—were
subject to a terrifying assault known to the Israelis “Operation Cast
Lead”. More than 1300 Gazans were killed in the attacks. Among the
dead, at least 70% were civilian and approximately 300 were children.
Numerous illegal targets were destroyed, including mosques, hospitals,
and United Nations facilities. White phosphorus rained down on a
school. The people of Gaza--whose borders are controlled by land, air
and sea--were trapped during the onslaught within one of the most
densely populated areas on earth. The killing ratio was 100 to 1. The
economic blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip predates the invasion and
continues to this day. Gazans cannot rebuild and they cannot leave.
Today, with their civilization in ruins around them, their families
injured or dead, severe shortages of water, electricity, medicines, and
food affect every aspect of Palestinian life.
The historic Gaza Freedom March will take place on
December 31st, 2009; it is the Palestinian people’s non-violent answer
to the continuing devastation wrought upon them by the invasion and the
inhumane blockade. Joined by internationals from around the world, tens
of thousands of Gazans will march peacefully to demand an end to the
