Darlene Wallach and Donna Wallach, Jewish anti-zionist social justice
activists, recently returned to the Bay Area after living in Gaza
Strip, Palestine from August - December 2008. Along with 41 other
human rights workers they broke the Israeli blockade of Gaza onboard
the two Free Gaza movement boats, SS Liberty & SS Free Gaza, which
arrived to Gaza in August 2008. Darlene and Donna remained in Gaza
with four other international volunteers and re-established
International Solidarity Movement Gaza Strip. While accompanying
Palestinian fishermen and farmers, and living among the people, they
witnessed Israeli occupation force soldiers constantly violate the six
month June 2008 ceasefire, and perpetrate collective punishment on the
1.5 million Palestinians living in Gaza. Listen to them speak about
the spirit, resilience, kindness, generousity, and sense of humor of
the Palestinian people and the peaceful ways they survive the brutal
and genocidal Israeli blockade and Occupation.
