Gaza one year on – JVP, Jewish Voice for Peace re-release Gaza Names video

Gaza Names video re-released by JVP – Jewish Voice for Peace

A year ago, Israel began its overwhelming 50-day military attack on Gaza while the world’s governments looked on. Israel was armed—and diplomatically protected—by the United States.

Over 2,200 Palestinians were killed, the vast majority of them civilians. Seventy-one Israelis were killed, 5 of them civilians.

Many of us took to the streets, the airwaves, and social media to say the loss of any life was one life too many, and that one of the world’s most technologically advanced armies had to stop bombing people hiding in schools, apartments, and hospitals.

JVP–Jewish Voice for Peace has re-released the Gaza Names video and website produced with the Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU). Narrated by Wallace Shawn, and featuring many artists and activists you will recognize, this 4 minute video shows the names and some of the faces of those who were killed.

It reminds us that Palestinians in Gaza are still living under siege. Still traumatized. Still resilient. And still fighting for their freedom.
