The Punishment of Gaza
The story behind Israel's assault on Gaza

Gideon Levy recently visited Canada on a speaking tour with the Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East.

In this video, from his Vancouver lecture, Levy discusses his new book, The Punishment of Gaza,  and a bleak future for the territory and its people. Tune in to rabbletv to watch the rest of Levy's talk.

Visit the Canadian Boat to Gaza for more information about how you can support the people of Gaza.

This video was produced by Jase Tanner, a Vancouver-based independent filmmaker and activist. He is a member of the working group for the Canadian Boat to Gaza.

Jase visited Palestine twice in 2009. On the second trip, he accompanied a Canadian delegation of Parliamentarians, producing the short film "Delegation to Palestine."

He was also a participant in the Gaza Freedom March in December 2009.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
