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.
Eva spent a total of 3 years in Gaza. She has a unique vantage point and a gift for sharing her experiences and insights. For this event, Eva will focus on the children of Gaza. Through the many photographs she took during her stay we get to meet the children in good and in bad times and the many instances of courage and hope in the lives of the children of Gaza.
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.
