One year on from the start of the Great March of Return protests in Gaza
From the beginning, unarmed protesters within Gaza’s perimeter have been targeted with live ammunition.
By the end of 2018, 189 Palestinians had been killed at the protests, including 35 children, 3 clearly marked paramedics and 2 clearly marked journalists. Over 23000 were injured.
By the end of February 2019, a further 5 Palestinians had been killed and 1188 injured. The protests continue.
On 28 February 2019 a UN Commission of Inquiry report was published, highlighting the deliberate targeting of medics, journalists, children and people with disabilities.
Come to our public meeting on 3 April
