The Protests in the Gaza Strip, One Year On
It has been a year since the demonstrations began. 200 Palestinians have been killed, more than 6,300 have been injured by live ammunition. Most of them were shot from a distance, without endangering anyone, as part of an illegal open-fire policy, which continues to be implemented with impunity. It has been a year of demonstrations, and over a decade of siege. The Gaza Strip is the largest open prison in the world. It is time to stop the killing, lift the siege, and give hope to the Gaza Strip.
