Haim Schwarczenberg Activestills

On International Women's Day 2014 we, feminist activists against the occupation, choose to stand as close as we can to the northern-most neighborhood in Gaza Strip. More than a million and a half women and men are living on the other side of the fence, though the Israeli public is completely oblivious to their existence. The daily ordeals, life and experiences of women under siege are hidden from our eyes by walls of concrete, fences and silence. On International Women's Day we stand in solidarity with the struggles of women in Israel., Palestine and all over the world who live under oppression . This year we chose on this day to come and stand here by Gaza, where hundreds of thousands of women are besieged, living in extreme conditions, experiencing water shortage, lack of medical and educational services, limited freedom of movement and poverty. Let's open our eyes and look beyond the walls, call for an end of the siege, and an end to the navel and aerial blockade on the Gaza Strip, for life, freedom and dignity
