The Great March of Return continues in Gaza, as does the slaughter by the Israeli snipers who openly shoot at protesters walking toward the wall that imprisons them in Gaza. Several of the protestors have died, but mostly the snipers shoot to maim, aiming at feet and legs. Imagine the barbarity of a nation which imprisons Gazans behind a huge wall, to have its soldiers shoot unarmed Gazan protestors when they get too close to that precious wall!

Today we will hear Ahmed Abu Artema, a founder of the Great March of Return. But first we hear an excerpt from an article by Jen Marlow, a journalist who writes in Mondoweiss describing her experience on one of these historic marches to the wall. From the article, it becomes clear that the Gazan protestors are among the bravest and most heroic people that the world has ever produced.

Finally, we hear from our main speaker, who spoke recently at Harvard Law School. Ahmed Abu Artema is a Palestinian journalist and peace activist, now on tour in the US. He is the author of the book "Organized Chaos" and numerous articles. He is a refugee from Al Ramla village in Palestine. Here is Ahmed Abu Artema, with introductory statements from the moderator, Amahl Bishara, professor at Tufts University.
