The Centre for Global Education and The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign cordially invite you to the launch of a new report on living conditions for children in Gaza.
Title: Children are in the Front Line of Israel’s Blockade of Gaza – A Report by Stephen McCloskey
Time & Date: Tuesday, 19 February 2013 from 11.00 am.
Venue: Room 232, St Mary’s University College, Falls Road, Belfast
Written just before Israel launched its ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud’ attack on Gaza last November, in which 30 Palestinian minors lost their lives, this is a timely reminder that although it has slipped from the headlines, Israel’s blockade of Gaza continues with devastating consequences for its children. After visiting the region and seeing the situation first hand, Director of the Centre for Global Education, Stephen McCloskey, has compiled a hard hitting report on just what the continuing blockade means to the children of Gaza’s health, sanitation, education and future status.
Coming on the heels of the UN’s alarming report, Gaza in 2020: A Liveable Place?, Stephen’s report illuminates the realities of everyday life for almost a million children trapped in what even British Prime Minister David Cameron described as “a prison camp”.
All are welcome and Stephen will be happy to answer questions.
