Beyond Words of Sympathy and Empathy – It Is Illegal Under International Law


So much evidence here on film. Can you imagine living like this? Israel’s blockade on Gaza is illegal and a crime against humanity which the world can see. Individuals in the zionist Israeli government can be charged for war crimes and crimes of ethnically cleansing a race/group of people. They will be going to prison, they might even be executed depending where they are caught and what the laws are in that country.

Building on existing closures and restrictions, the blockade means the delay or denial of a broad range of items – food, industrial, educational, medical – deemed “non-essential” for a population largely unable to be self-sufficient at the end of decades of occupation. The blockade prevents access by sea, land and air, effectively closing off a population of 1.5 million Palestinians from the outside world.

This short film examines what the blockade means for the people of Gaza, as they struggle to rebuild their lives over a year after Operation Cast Lead.
