A Presentation by Eva Bartlett, Canadian human rights activist and journalist reporting on Gaza since 2008. Her eyewitness accounts from Occupied Palestine have been published in the Electronic Intifada, Inter Press Service, Countercurrents and her own blog: http://www.ingaza.wordpress.com.
As a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement, Bartlett accompanies Gazan farmers and fishers under threat of harassment and sniper fire from Israeli forces. She rode with medics in their ambulances during Cast Lead, Israel's devastating assault on Gaza in 2008-2009 that killed over 1,400 Palestinians.
