This special international on-line event is co-hosted by Kia Ora Gaza, in cooperation with Palestine solidarity groups overseas, and in support of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition who are due to sail once again (after travel restrictions are lifted) to challenge Israel’s illegal blockade of Gaza, Palestine.

Film-maker Abby Martin will join us after the screening to discuss the making of her documentary, including a questions and answers period. Filmed during the height of the Great March Of Return protests, it features riveting exclusive footage of demonstrations. The documentary tells the story of Gaza past and present, showing rare archival footage that explains the history never acknowledged by mass media. You hear from victims of the ongoing massacre, including journalists, medics and the family of internationally acclaimed paramedic, Razan al-Najjar.

‘Gaza Fights for Freedom’ – trailer

At its core, ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ is a thorough indictment of the Israeli military for war crimes, and a stunning cinematic portrayal of Palestinians’ heroic resistance. 

We will also be joined for part of the discussion by a Palestinian participant from one our partner organizations in Gaza We Are Not Numbers, a group of inspiring young Palestinian journalists telling their stories of daily life in the Gaza Strip.

Kia Ora Gaza raises awareness and support for the Freedom Flotilla’s sailing against the blockade of Gaza, with a focus on the children and youth of Gaza. The Freedom Flotilla’s next sailing, called For the Children of Gaza, will once again challenge the blockade, while focusing attention on young people in Gaza, who form more than half of the population in that tiny besieged area. Kia Ora Gaza is part of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, which contributed for a decade to initiatives including the Women’s Boat to Gaza (2016), Solidarity with Gaza Fishers (2017), and Right to a Just Future for Palestine (2018). We welcome all support and endorsements that contribute towards the goals and principles of our campaign to end the blockade and colonial occupation.

We will record the discussion and will post it online, and if you want to watch the film at another time then please rent or buy it.
