Empire Files: Gaza Fights For Freedom (Trailer)

GAZA FIGHTS FOR FREEDOM.jpg
“The Palestinian people are buried alive”, summarizes one man in Abby Martin’s powerful new documentary. It focuses on The Great March of Return, a peaceful demonstration started by the people of Gaza in March 2018 and still continuing to this day. Soon after the beginning of this non-violent initiative, the Israeli military started shooting and gassing protesters, including women, children, journalists, and paramedics.

“We want more than sympathy. We want our rights,” says the grief-stricken mother of a young female health worker who was shot by an Israeli sniper as she tried to rescue injured protesters with her paramedic team. And for justice to be made, the international community needs to know the truth about the war crimes Israel is committing in Gaza. This film contains some images of brutal and graphic violence but is a must-see documentary. 

This film was chosen by Mads Gilbert, the head of the emergency medicine department at the UNN and an active solidarity worker in Palestine since the 1970s.
