Action Alert! Children of Gaza

MPACUK Action Alert!

12 year old Omsyatte lost her younger brother and her home in the Israeli attack on Gaza and now lives in the heat in a tent. What does she wish for? "To die. I would rather be martyred than live like this."

In January 2009 over 1300 Palestinians were killed in Gaza by the Israeli war machine. More than 300 of those killed were children. When the ceasefire was declared, BAFTA winning film-maker Jezza Neumann arrived to follow the lives of 4 children over the course of a year. Through their eyes, and in their words, Channel 4's Children of Gaza gives us a unique insight into the impact of the Israeli onslaught on innocent young minds.

Thank Channel 4 for this important and moving documentary - if we don't support programmes that show the truth about Palestine then we can be sure pro-Israel media activists will flood Channel 4 with complaints. 2 minutes of our time is the least we can do for our young brothers and sisters who are suffering so much.

"Those who profess to favour freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will."

— Frederick Douglass
