A young Gazan speaks

A Young Gazan Speaks  In the Spring of 2010 students at the University of California (Berkeley) debated divestment from two companies that support the occupation of Palestine. Among those who spoke was this young woman from Gaza, who wanted to know why it is that we cannot understand that "the one thing my family wants is the opportunity to live like a human being."  View the entire 10 minute video, "UCB Supporters of Divestment from Israel", at the Jewish Voice for Peace Youtube Channel.
