    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The world has forgotten Gaza, its women and children. The people of Gaza are being crushed under the Israeli blockade which severely restricts essential supplies coming into the strip. The blockade is as bad as the war; it’s like a slow death for everyone in Gaza.
  2. An Act Of State Terrorism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    We have to appeal to the core of people who have already been active on one level or another around the Palestinian question, or those who are already convinced, to re-galvanize the movement, and go out and convince yet wider layers of people. We must argue the Palestinian case, and also push the case more generally to very wide layers of people.

    Barbarism on the High Seas

    Resource Type: Article

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Israel desperately covets Gaza's gas as a 'cheap stop-gap' yielding revenues of $6-7 billion a year, writes Nafeez Ahmed. But first Hamas must be 'uprooted' from Gaza, and Fatah bullied into cutting off its talks with Russia's Gazprom.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    We, the youth of Gaza, who make up sixty percent of Gaza's 1.6 million residents, have increasingly felt repressed in many aspects, starting from the long-standing Israeli occupation of our lands -- particularly the four-year-old Israeli blockade of Gaza -- through the injustice inflicted everywhere by the rulers of Gaza, who we elected four years ago.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    On August 26th, 2014, Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) both accepted a ceasefire agreement after a 50-day Israeli assault on Gaza that left 2,100 Palestinians dead and vast landscapes of destruction behind. The agreement calls for an end to military action by both Israel and Hamas, as well as an easing of the Israeli siege that has strangled Gaza for many years.

    I was part of a delegation of 62 people that entered Gaza on March 7, 2009.

  10. Creating A Giant Ghetto in Gaza
    Against The Current vol. 125

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    I is possible to force a whole people to submit to foreign occupation by starving it? That is, certainly, an interesting question. So interesting, indeed, that the governments of Israel and the United States, in close cooperation with Europe, are now engaged in a rigorous scientific experiment in order to obtain a definitive answer.
  11. Crossing Rafah
    Heading to Gaza

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015

  15. 'Disgustingly Biased' - The Corporate Media On The Gaza Massacre
    Resource Type: Article

  19. "Exterminate all the Brutes": Gaza 2009
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Israel has a straightforward means to defend itself: put an end to its criminal actions in occupied territories, and accept the long-standing international consensus on a two-state settlement that has been blocked by the US and Israel for over 30 years, since the US first vetoed a Security Council resolution calling for a political settlement in these terms in 1976. The Arab League has gone even beyond the consensus, calling for full normalization of relations with Israel. Hamas has repeatedly called for a two-state settlement in terms of the international consensus. Iran and Hezbollah have made it clear that they will abide by any agreement that Palestinians accept.
  20. The Facts About Hamas and the War on Gaza
    Seeing Through the Lies

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The record shows that Hamas wanted to continue the ceasefire, but only on condition that Israel eases the blockade. Long before Hamas began the retaliatory rocket attacks on Israel, Palestinians were facing a humanitarian crisis in Gaza because of the blockade.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Israel has killed almost 800 Palestinians in the past 21 days in the Gaza Strip alone; its onslaught continues. The UN estimates that more than 74 percent of those killed are civilians. Israel does not deny that it killed those Palestinians using modern aerial technology and precise weaponry courtesy of the world’s only superpower. In fact, it does not even deny that they are civilians.

  26. From Klinghoffer to the Gaza Flotilla
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Under the Rome Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation of 1988, it is an international crime for any person to seize or exercise control over a ship by force, and also a crime to injure or kill any person in the process. The treaty necessarily adopts a strict approach. One cannot attack a ship and then claim self-defense if the people on board resist the unlawful use of violence. In other words, according to international law, the actions of the Israeli military were beyond the law and those involved should be treated no differently than, say, the Somali pirates who are also in the habit of boarding ships by force.
  27. Fuck Hamas! Fuck Israel! Gaza youth offers up a cry of despair

    Resource Type: Article

  28. Gaza 2009: De-Osloizing the Palestinian Mind
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The lesson we learn from Gaza 2009 is to harness all effort to fight the outcome of the Oslo Accords, and to form a United Front on a platform of resistance and reforms. This cannot be achieved without dismantling the PA and realizing that ministries, premierships, and presidencies in Gaza and Ramalah are a façade not unlike the South African Independent Homelands with their tribal chiefs. The classical national program, created and adopted by the Palestinian bourgeoisie has reached its end unsuccessfully.
  29. Gaza Calling
    Resource Type: Film/Video
    For over six years, two Palestinian families are split between the West Bank and Gaza; mothers and sons are forbidden from travelling the one-hour road that separates them. Witness the personal cost of Israel's illegal occupation.
  30. Gaza Community Mental Health Programme

  31. Gaza Freedom March Blocked
    Against The Current vol. 145

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Fourteen hundred international activists mobilized in Cairo, Egypt in late December for a Gaza Freedom March (GFM) to break the siege imposed by the U.S., Israeli and Egyptian governments. The marchers were blocked and attacked by Egyptian police and military forces; there can be no doubt that the authorization for these assaults and the orders to block the march from reaching Gaza came directly from the U.S. administration.
  32. Gaza: Health System in Collapse
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    The extremity of suffering in Gaza is little known in the West. Underlying the health emergency is the Israeli military's destruction of Gaza's basic infrastructure and Israel's closure of all Gaza's borders.
  33. Gaza in Ruins
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Gaza is a ruin, populated by nearly two million people. The July-August 2014 bombardment of this tiny enclave by Israel resulted in over 2,500 dead Palestinians and an infrastructure -- already weak -- utterly destroyed. A garrotted sliver of land that sits on the Mediterranean Sea, Gaza cannot import goods to survive, let alone to reconstruct the damage. Oxfam says that it would take over a hundred years to bring Gaza back to the conditions in June 2014 because of the ongoing Israeli siege. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), an agency tasked with the provision of relief to the Palestinian refugees, complained that "people are literally sleeping amongst the rubble; children have died of hypothermia." Pledges for relief are not delivered, and even if they would be handed over to the United Nations (UN), the Israeli embargo makes it impossible for goods to enter Gaza. Gaza, like the rest of Palestine, is condemned to purgatory.
  34. Gaza - is annexation Israel's 'permanent solution'?
    The real estate of Gaza would be an additional boon - and a highly valuable one, releasing 365 square kilometres of prime development land,

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    As Israel pursues its war on Gaza with ever-increasing ferocity, and with 25% of Gaza's people forced from their homes, what's the final objective? It's unthinkable that Israel's aim is to 'cleanse' the territory of its people, seize its vast gas reserves, and annex some of the Med's hottest real estate. Isn't it?
  35. Gaza: Israel's $4 billion gas grab
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    The purpose of Israel's escalating assault on Gaza is to control the Territory's 1.4 trillion cubic feet of gas - and so keep Palestine poor and weak, gain massive export revenues, and avert its own domestic energy crisis. If Palestinians develop their own gas resources, the resulting economic transformation could in turn fundamentally increase Palestinian clout.
  36. Gaza: Life and death under Israel’s drones
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    There are many things to fear in Gaza. Drones are increasingly being used for surveillance and extra-judicial execution in parts of the Middle East, especially by the US. There are no statistics that detail the effect of the drones on Palestinians in Gaza.
  37. Gaza Occupation And Siege Are Illegal
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Collective punishment is specifically barred under Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention. Israeli officials have repeatedly stated that the objective of the blockade is to weaken the Gaza economy and undermine support for Hamas. That is a political, not a military, objective, and it is impermissible under international law to target innocent civilians to achieve nonmilitary goals. Actions taken to enforce an illegal siege cannot themselves be legal. Israel's blockade violates the human rights of Gaza Palestinians and must be brought to an end.
  38. Gaza, The World's Largest Outdoor Prison
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Sara Roy couldn't have predicted the deterioration of Gaza since the 2005 unilateral pullout of Israeli occupation forces and settlers any more effectively than in her book Failing Peace: Gaza and the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict. For those seeking a thorough understanding of the failure for peace to spontaneously erupt upon the exit of the settlers from Gaza, Failing Peace is a valuable resource.
  39. Gaza: water crisis grows as Israel targets essential infrastructure
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Israel's war on Gaza has seen the systematic and widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure essential for human survival. This represents an apparently deliberate 'cutting off of life support' to those that survive the bombardment now under way.
  40. Gaza: What Would Lincoln Do?
    Sasha, Malia: Tell Your Parents About Sara al-Dalou!

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    The point of invoking Lincoln is not to guess what he might do in Obama’s shoes, but to reflect on what he did when forced to balance political calculus, the rule of law, and moral and humanitarian considerations.
  41. Gazan Youth's Manifesto for Change

  44. Gaza’s Torment, Israel’s Crimes, Our Responsibilities
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    It is important to understand what life is like in Gaza when Israel’s behavior is “restrained,” in between the regular manufactured crises like this one. When Israel is on “good behavior,” more than two Palestinian children are killed every week, a pattern that goes back over 14 years. The underlying cause is the criminal occupation and the programs to reduce Palestinian life to bare survival in Gaza, while Palestinians are restricted to unviable cantons in the West Bank and Israel takes over what it wants, all in gross violation of international law and explicit Security Council resolutions, not to speak of minimal decency.
  45. The Goldstone report and the battle for legitimacy
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    It may yet be the case that, as in the anti-apartheid struggle, the shift in the relation of forces in the Palestinians' favour will occur not through diplomacy or as a result of armed resistance, but on the symbolic battlefield of legitimacy that has become global in scope.

  48. Guernica, 1937 / Gaza, 2014
    Only the Insignias Change

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    I invoke the Guernica example, not for spurious comparison or analogy, but because its occurrence is inscribed in the very DNA of modern historical oppression, in this case possessing precisely the same elements of overwhelming force on a largely defenseless population, in this case, having less to do with stopping rockets than a) terrorizing a people into abject submission, and b) testing out aerial warfare to soften an enemy and perhaps even clear the way for ground action—beyond consolidating settlement gains in the territories, also serving notice on Iran and whomever else (viz., Arab democracy) is viewed as a real or potential threat down the road.
  49. Guernica Written With the Hands and Hearts of Children
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The keynote speaker at the launch of the exhibition Gaza's childrens' paintings, referred to the paintings as 'a toxic cargo of beautiful but unwelcome images which it is necessary that we see and acknowledge.' Toxic because the blockade and assault on Gaza was, and is, toxic. Toxic because the paintings mirror back to our adult world the poisonous environment we have watched develop for these children. The paintings describe aerial bombardment of apartment blocks, mosques, schools, hospitals, ambulances. They portray phosphorous, helicopter and drone attacks on civilians. Gunboats fire inland from the sea. Bulldozers demolish homes. Everything happens in an enclosed space from which there is no escape.
  50. Guillotining Gaza
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    Noam Chomsky briefly depicts the many factors which prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and promote ongoing conflict in the region.
  51. Hamas Rocket Launches Don't Explain Israel's Gaza Destruction -- Israeli Forces' Manipulated Figures and Fake Evidence
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Israel and its supporters abroad have parried accusations of indiscriminate destruction and mass killing of civilians in Gaza by arguing that they were consequences of strikes aimed at protecting Israeli civilians from rockets that were being launched from very near civilian structures.
  52. HAMAS Under the Spotlight
    Against The Current vol. 132

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    In a seemingly dramatic move in mid-2004, Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement which hitherto refused to participate in the Palestinian political system, expressed its willingness to be a part of that system.
  53. Health care and children in crisis in Gaza
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    These days one hears a lot about Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan, adults who have been specifically trained for warfare, who are nevertheless traumatized by the experience of seeing comrades injured or killed, or suffering injuries or danger themselves. The trauma goes on, long after the experience has ended and they are back in a place of safety. How much worse then for children in Gaza who witness and experience these events day after day, week after week with no end and with no place of safety.

  58. How Many Divisions?
    Israel is losing this war

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    In this war, as in any modern war, propaganda plays a major role. The disparity between the forces, between the Israeli army - with its airplanes, gunships, drones, warships, artillery and tanks - and the few thousand lightly armed Hamas fighters, is one to a thousand, perhaps one to a million. In the political arena the gap between them is even wider. But in the propaganda war, the gap is almost infinite.
  59. How Truth Slips Down The Memory Hole
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    John Pilger, applies to current events Orwell's description in '1984' of how the Ministry of Truth consigned embarrassing truth to a memory hole. He highlights the killing of a Palestinian cameraman by the Israelis as an example of how "we" are trained to look on the rest of the world as quite unlike ourselves: useful or expendable.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    When Israel labels as "terrorists" the ship passengers who offered some resistance to the Israeli invaders, who points out that the passengers who resisted the 9-11 highjackers on the plane which crashed in Pennsylvania are called "heroes"?
  61. Impressions of Gaza
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Even a single night in jail is enough to give a taste of what it means to be under the total control of some external force. And it hardly takes more than a day in Gaza to begin to appreciate what it must be like to try to survive in the world's largest open-air prison, where a million and a half people, in the most densely populated area of the world, are constantly subject to random and often savage terror and arbitrary punishment.

    Persistent struggle can have an effect, and can lead governments to act.

    First Published: 2009
    A friend forwarded to me the most original greeting for the New Year: "I wish in 2009 a horrible year for all war criminals and their accomplices." I could not but think of whether some United Nations officials can be counted among such "accomplices."

The three other vessels in the flotilla turned back and another big-hearted mission ended "with a whimper". Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon called his operation to deprive desperate, poverty stricken Gazans a "success". The Marianne‘s passengers would be be deported. "There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza," he added.
  71. Israel in Gaza: A Critical Reframing 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The critical reframing we offer, that of Israelis committed to human rights, international law and a just peace as the only way out of this interminable and bloody conflict, argues that security cannot be achieved unilaterally while one side oppresses the other and that Israel's attack on Gaza is merely another attempt to render its Occupation permanent by destroying any source of effective resistance.

    Resource Type: Article

    If we needed any evidence of the degree to which Western TV journalists are simply stenographers to power, the BBC, CNN and others are amply proving it. Mark Regev, Israel's propagandist-in-chief, has the airwaves largely to himself. The passengers on the ships, meanwhile, have been kidnapped by Israel and are unable to provide an alternative version of events. We can guess they will remain in enforced silence until Israel is sure it has set the news agenda.

    First Published: 2010
    The crimes that Israel committed during its assault on the vessels and civilian passengers of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla fall firmly within the category of "high crimes." The assault, rather than an act of piracy, must be defined as a "crime against the peace" and a "crime against humanity" as Israel subjected "part of the high seas to its sovereignty" in a murderous attack on unarmed civilian vessels. The severity of these crimes is magnified precisely because the criminal actor is not an individual but a highly militarized state.

    As advanced societies are de-politicised, the changes are both subtle and spectacular. In everyday discourse, political language is turned on its head, as Orwell prophesised in 1984. "Democracy" is now a rhetorical device. Peace is "perpetual war". "Global" is imperial. The once hopeful concept of "reform" now means regression, even destruction. "Austerity" is the imposition of extreme capitalism on the poor and the gift of socialism for the rich: an ingenious system under which the majority service the debts of the few.

    First Published: 2016
    This issue of Other Voices shines a light on the murky world of conflict of interest, the hidden reality that often underlies appearances of neutrality, objectivity, and due process. Conflicts of interest are inherent in capitalism, a system founded on the premise that the state and society should be subordinated to economic self-interest and the accumulation of private wealth. Scientists who are supposed to be studying the effects of GMOs are funded by agribusiness corporations. Doctors who receive money from pharmaceutical companies write articles promoting the drugs produced by those companies. Decisions about pipelines are made by regulators who have spent years working in the oil industry, and who will be heading back to jobs in the industry after their stint ‘regulating’ it. Politicians receive campaign funds from corporate lobbyists.

The book also explore events that stirred people to action, and the escalating risks they face in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. The title is borrowed from a young Palestinian who makes and teaches film in the Jenin refugee camp. "This is my way to fight," he said. Like other people featured in the book, he is a peace activist. Like them he is also, in his own way, a freedom fighter. If a just peace can grow in this beautiful, hard land, the seeds for it will have been planted by people like these.

    John Pilger first made the film ‘Palestine Is Still The Issue‘ in 1977. It told how almost a million Palestinians had been forced off their land in 1948, and again in 1967. Twenty five years later, in 2002, John Pilger returned to the West Bank of Jordan and Gaza, to make another film, giving it the same title. The film asks why the Palestinians, whose right of return was affirmed by the United Nations more than half a century ago, are still caught in a terrible limbo – refugees in their own land, controlled by Israel in the longest military occupation in modern times.

The news organizations feel they have to have some reporters in Gaza for a change. They keep trying to spin the news in Israel’s favour, but once they’re showing even a little bit of the reality on the ground, it all starts looking really bad for the Israelis with each new dead Palestinian child buried beneath the rubble.

This is how the billionaires and generals and politicians who rule over the Israeli population get away with what they are doing: getting richer and more powerful while driving the rest of the population down economically. They need the Israeli population to believe that the rulers of Israel are protecting Jews from the "real enemy"--violent anti-Semitic Arabs. To make sure the "real enemy" remains credible, non-combatant Jews must die at the hands of apparent anti-Semites.

The Israeli Defense Force attacked a vessel filled with civilian peace activists, including elderly Holocaust survivors, members of foreign parliaments, and young children.

Mission Connexions ist gedacht für die Unterstützung von Personen und Gruppen, die sich für Freiheit und Soziale Gerechtigkeit einsetzen. Unser anliegen ist es die Aufzeichnungen vom wirken von Menschen und deren Kampf gegen Unterdrückung und für gesellschaftlichen Wandel zur Verfügung zu stellen. Wir glauben daran, dass je mehr wir über die Konflikte, Siege und Niederlagen der Vergangenheit und über diejenigen die daran Teilgenommen haben wissen, desto besser sind wir dazu in der Lage eine neue Welt zu gestallten. Connexions verfügt sowohl über einen Bestand an Büchern und Dokumenten und ist außerdem bemüht das bereits bestehende digitale Archiv an Dokumenten weiter auszubauen. Wir arbeiten daran einen weiten Themenbereich abzudecken, der eine Vielzahl von unterschiedlichen Ansichten und Herangehensweisen für Gesellschaftlichen Wandel umfasst, alles mit dem Grundsätzlichen anliegen der Unterstützung der Demokratie, Bürgerrechte, freie Meinungsäußerung, Menschenrechen, Säkularität, Gleichheit, wirtschaftlichen Gerechtigkeit, ökologisches Verantwortungsbewusstsein und dem erschaffen und dem erhalt von Gemeinschaft. Wir sind International orientiert, allerdings haben wir als kanadisches Projekt eine besonders große Auswahl an kanadischen Dokumenten und Informationen über kanadische Organisationen.
