Gaza: The economy under the siege

Khalil S. Shaheen, Head of the Economic Unit at the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, talks about the Gaza economy under the siege, how the occupation and the siege affect directly the economy, and therefore the development of the oppressed Palestinian people, denying them the right to develop and have normal lives as human beings.

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.
