One year ago Israel launched a 22-day ferocious military attack against 
the 1.5 million residents of the Gaza Strip, the majority of whom are 
More than 1,300 Gazans were killed in the attacks.

Since then Gaza has been a closed prison as Israel, with the blessing of 
the US, has maintained its nearly 4-year-long blockade. The Palestinians 
in Gaza are being forced to live in the wreckage of the war with 
essential supplies being smuggled from Egypt through dangerous, 
hand-made tunnels.
This year in Gaza an historic Gaza Freedom March will take place on Dec. 
31, 2009. Some 1,400 internationals from 42 countries --- including 14 
participants from Massachusetts - will marching with the Palestinian
