Olive Harvest. Gaza Strip 2013

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip harvest the olive during the month of October. A couple of years ago an important number of land were planted with olives trees that were compleatly destroyed by the Israeli bulldozers preventing the Palestinians to plant them again in the so called “green line”. Nowadays the olive oil industry is just a part of a small economy wich it is also prevented the exportation of this olive oil as a consecuence of the more than 7 years of the Zionist blockade.

Gaza in Shadows

I tried to collect some pictures offering a glimpse of the situation in the Gaza Strip, a closed, besieged place put under a blockade by the Israeli Zionist state.

Despite the everyday misery and difficulty, people carry on with their lives and try to do their best in order to survive in such an open-air jail, without losing the hope of finishing sooner, rather than later, with such a heartless situation.

The images were taken with my mobilephone as I don’t have a proper camera.

He intentado elegir algunas fotografías para explicar brevemente la situación de la Franja de Gaza, un lugar cerrado, sitiado y bloqueado por el Estado sionista israelí.

A pesar de la miseria y las dificultades del día a día, la gente continúa con sus vidas, haciendo todo lo possible para sobrevivir en esta càrcel al aire libre, sin perder la esperanza de acabar, en un futuro cercano, con esta situación inhumana.

Las fotos fueron tomadas con un teléfono móvil a falta de una cámara de fotos.
