Title: Children are in the Front Line of Israel’s Blockade of Gaza – A Report by Stephen McCloskey

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.
