Action is needed to end the Israeli military blockade of Gaza.
On October 6, AFSC and Haymarket Books launched Light in Gaza with a webinar event featuring contributors Refaat Alareer, Mosab Abu Toha, and Jehad Abusalim. Refaat, Mosab, and Jehad spoke about storytelling in Gaza and imagining a future for Gaza beyond the blockade.
The event, livestreamed on Haymarket Books' YouTube Channel, is available to watch here: https://youtu.be/4u6aagh4ZIE
Light in Gaza: Writings Born of Fire brings together sixteen essays and poems by twelve Palestinian writers. The book includes political essays, personal narratives, economic analysis, and poetry. The book is edited by American Friends Service Committee staff Jehad Abusalim, Jennifer Bing, and Mike Merryman-Lotze and published by Haymarket Books.
Weapons and surveillance manufacturers have an interest in maintaining Gaza as a playground for any technology Israel wishes to test on Palestinians.
