Global warming didn't pause at all during Cairo's recent rebirth. In fact, every month of inaction on Earth's climate emergency makes recovery that much harder and costlier.
Eva Bartlett has witnessed the events and suffering depicted in the current Beit Zatoun exhibition of drawings by children from Gaza. Eva is a Canadian and volunteer with I SM (International Solidarity Movement). She has seen Gaza and its children as perhaps few westerners have. She arrived a month before Operation Cast Lead was launched in Dec. 2008 with all its horrific consequences. She witnessed first-hand the massive destruction and participated in ambulance rescue efforts. Of the more than 1400 dead, 313 were children. Untold numbers more were injured and scarred for life.
