It’s been more than 10 years since Israel imposed a military blockade on Gaza. In that time, “Gaza has endured three Israeli military assaults from land, sea, and air that have left thousands of Palestinians dead, many more badly injured and maimed, and much of the [Gaza] strip’s infrastructure and fragile economy in ruins,” writes Omer.

Learn more about the crisis in Gaza and why the U.S. must demand an end to the blockade at one of Omer’s upcoming appearances. #gazaunlocked
