Gaza is calling on YOU. Hiba Al Danf

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Organizations and international institutions are warning that Gaza is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis[1] in spite of the humanitarian aid provided by the international community. Already now, Gaza is facing a water crisis, extreme pollution, electricity shortage, restricted access to health services and education as well as economic distress. All these hardships turn life into a daily struggle for survival for Gaza’s residents, both women and men. Amidst all this, women are dealing with a wide range of gender specific challenges[2]. This situation is the cumulative outcome of a decade-long siege on Gaza, in addition to the frequent military offensives on the strip every few years, and the failed attempts at reconstruction in-between these rounds.

The Gaza strip is under a high degree of effective control by Israel and is therefore under its occupation. Israel has repeatedly refused to fulfill its obligations under international law.

Therefore, we turn to the UN and EU, to hold Israel accountable and to ensure human rights for Gaza’s residents.

WOMEN BEYOND THE SIEGE

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Organizations and international institutions are warning that Gaza is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis. Already now, Gaza is facing a water crisis, extreme pollution, electricity shortage as well as economic distress. All these hardships turn life into a daily struggle for survival for Gaza’s residents, both women and men. This situation is the cumulative outcome of a decade-long siege on Gaza, in addition to the frequent military offensives on the strip every few years, and the attempts at reconstruction in-between these rounds.

Amidst all this, women in Gaza are dealing with specific difficulties and challenges. But as already the situation in Gaza is rarely brought up, the situation of women is even less present in public debates. Precisely because of that, we ought to be all ears and listen to the calls coming from Gaza, to learn and to become active.

The right to shelter -Gender aspects

The right to shelter- our new position paper

Following 2011 demonstrations and the social justice protest, the public’s

awareness was raised regarding the housing crisis and the urgency of this problem for excluded communities in the socioeconomic  periphery. Most of the public in Israel, however, is unaware – and seemingly does not want to be aware – of the gravity and characteristics  of this issue, nor are the partners in all the different struggles always aware of the differences between the sources of this crisis and the ways in which different classes live through it.   Our purpose in this position paper is to emphasize the unique aspects  of the housing issue, in the context of the wider struggles for justice and equality: the Mizrahi struggle, the Palestinian struggle and the feminist  struggle.  Hence, we shall especially seek to address the ways in which gender forms a decisive component in the various aspects of this issue. By doing so, we would like to emphasize that the struggle for housing is a struggle for a more basic, existential security. This emphasis is important for us, as we believe that in the majority of the statements and publications related with the housing issue, gender aspects are only infrequently addressed specifically and the unique ways in which the absence of housing prejudices women are not satisfactorily examined
