Live Discussion and audience Q&A with Ramzy Baroud and Zarefah Baroud
The Gaza Strip has been made into an Israeli combat zone with the decided aim of crushing Palestinian resistance. Israeli weapons, most of which are courtesy of Washington, have for, at least, 14 years turned Gaza into the world’s largest open air prison. But neither prison nor siege have ended the Palestinian struggle for freedom. Palestinians in Gaza, as elsewhere, are determined to claim their rights, no matter how high the price. The discussion will touch on the stories of real Palestinians who have paid a high price for their resistance, in all of its forms.
