Under Siege: Daily Life in Gaza

A conversation with Gaza based writer Rawan Yaghi about daily life in Gaza. In her recent op-ed in the New York Times, titled “Gaza Screams for Life,” Gaza-based writer Rawan Yaghi describes her visit to the site of the Great March of Return protest at the border two days after Friday’s massacre. She writes, “I left the protest thinking of the rest of Gaza — shellshocked for years, its borders closed and its United Nations-funded infrastructure in decay. I thought of the kids in my neighborhood who play football in what used to be the ground floor of a tall residential building, with bare concrete columns and poking iron rods as their only audience. And I thought: Once again, Gaza the Injured has come out to protest, and to scream for life.” April 5th, 2018 | English Interviewed by Malihe Razazan Courtesy of Voices of the Middle East and North Africa (VOMENA)
