The World’s Largest Open Air-Prison Under Attack

(18" x 24" Giclée print available)


The Gaza Strip, home to more than a million Palestinians, has been under lockdown (siege) and they are now under attack by Israel. During the lockdown, the necessities of life have been smuggled in from Egypt by way of tunnels. The Israeli army took care of that just now, by bombing the area to collapse the tunnels. With US-supplied airplanes. More than 800 Palestinians have been killed, with reports of thousands more injuries including women and children. And, of course, now these people have no access to Egypt. Gaza is a urban prison.
