100 DAYS OF ZIO-NAZI SIEGE

NOVANEWS 

Photos and videos from an event on Thursday to com­mem­o­rate 1000 days of siege, a siege longer than Leningrad’s. The director of the popular committee against the siege spoke and lit the brazier. There were 1000 candles on the ground. There was also a short series of speeches, by Pales­tin­ian leaders and several members of the ISM, and a dancing and singing ceremony by some Pales­tin­ian children. Mostly, it was somber. It is not clear how to resist such a hermetic, technologically-based siege beyond simple survival, and it’s survival under terms that Israel continues to control. Sometimes, it’s not survival–I have learned that treatable cancers are a major source of death here. Nec­es­sar­ily, English-speaking attendees–and there were very few of us, the NGO-people and the jour­nal­ists don’t come to these events–were in demand for inter­views. There is a clear need to play to an inter­na­tional, and espe­cially English-speaking audience.
