Human Drama in Gaza photo exhibition

Monday, January 31, 2011 - 13:00 to Friday, February 11, 2011 - 20:30

The University of Saskatchewan's Humanities Research Unit (HRU) will be hosting Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East's (CJPME) Human Drama in Gaza photo exhibition.

CJPME and the HRU invite Saskatonians to view the exhibition and learn more about the Gaza situation. "The suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza during the Israeli onslaught, and the increasing misery brought on by Israel's blockade of Gaza are issues that should concern all Canadians," adds Woodley. The exhibition has been seen by thousands in Montreal, Lévis, Ottawa, Toronto, Yellowknife, Hamilton, London and Edmonton.

The Exposition features 44 visually gripping and haunting photos taken by professional photojournalists from Israel, Palestine, and the West during Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza two winters ago. It sheds light on the human impact of the assault, in which over 1400 Palestinians-the majority of them civilians-and 13 Israelis were killed.

The exhibition is complemented by public discussions and film screenings that will enrich viewers' understanding of the exhibition and the circumstances that generated it.

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.
