Seven Days from a Gaza Diary
On December 27, 2008, a 27-year-old woman, Khulood Ghanem, was in Gaza City when Israel launched its massive, three-week military assault on Gaza known as Operation Cast Lead. Khulood kept a diary, making an entry about her experience every day of the assault. The first seven days of her diary have been adapted for a reading performance.
Current Situation: The people of Gaza are facing one of the most difficult periods since the Israeli military siege began ten years ago. Electricity provision is at an all-time low as a result of political calculations made by Israel and supported by the Palestinian Authority. As of July, the average Gazan’s access to daily electricity dropped from four to six to as little as two to three hours a day.De-development of the Gaza Strip is making it unlivable.

In order to devote needed and sustained attention to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, the Gaza Committee will support RCF’s work in Gaza as well as emerging issues in Gaza.
