Gaza March

Israel’s blockade of Gaza is a flagrant violation of international law that has led to mass suffering. The U.S., the European Union, and the rest of the international community are complicit. The law is clear. The conscience of humankind is shocked. Yet, the siege of Gaza continues.
For more information, please see The Gaza Freedom March ‘Statement of Context

Hundreds of people from all over the globe ,including myself, shall convene in Cairo on Dec. 27, cross into Gaza on Dec. 29 and march alongside the Palestinian people in a non-violent demonstration on Dec. 31.

My duty first and foremost,as a freelance journalist, during and after this march is to bring back first-hand accounts and news from the Gaza Strip.
The voices of the people of Palestine have been diluted and muffled through the mainstream media, which most often takes the side of Israel thus rejecting the acknowledgment of Palestinian suffering.

I have been writing Op-Eds and articles in relation to Palestinian suffering for about 4 – 5 years but in all of these years I have never had the opportunity to go and visit the Occupied Territories – until now.

My mission is complex, unorthodox and shall be a struggle but for every moment I spend in Gaza I will make it my supreme duty to give the Palestinians a voice.
I wish to be a loudspeaker for the oppressed and subjugated in Palestine, thus my commitment is
nothing less than stern and steadfast non-violent resistance and activism – I will do my best to provide my readers with information from the front-lines while at the same time making it my mission to be one of hundreds who have committed themselves to standing in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

I am going to Palestine but I wish to make my readers active participants in this life-changing mission.

Many of you have never been to Palestine so I know there must be a vast array of unanswered questions floating around – I’m asking you to send me your questions by emailing me [intellectualtheatre@gmail] or leaving a comment down below.

Whatever they may be, over whatever you wish, covering as much terrain as you like – all you need to do is ask.

Questions can be related to:
Politics
Environment
Education
Food/Natural Resources
Employment
Effects of ‘Operation Cast Lead’ on the people of Gaza
Health
[etc]

I will be taking questions now and throughout the trip so send in your questions and comments as you think of them!

Thank you,
Political Theatrics
