The event will connect four different communities and cities simultaneously running the same event in the UK, US and Palestine, and will include a photo exhibition. Join us!

As the first event by the Network of Photographers for Palestine, and building on the success of our annual video links between Palestine and the outside world, this year we are delighted to hold a photography exhibition and a Skype video link under the title

  

"Gaza - Then and Now"

This event will be held to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of British activist Tom Hurndall, and American activist Rachel Corrie, as both were killed during invasions of Israeli Occupation Forces back in 2003 and 2004 respectively.

We aim to connect four different communities and cities simultaneously running the same event in the United Kingdom (London and Edinburgh), United States of America (Olympia) and Palestine (Gaza City) to assess the current situation in the besieged Gaza strip as opposed to the time when Tom and Rachel were killed 10 years ago

             


 

A photography exhibition, Not Afraid to Look: In Loving Memory of Tom Hurndall and Rachel Corrie will also take place with the compilation of photographs showing life currently in Gaza and Solidarity actions around the world, in order to commemorate the work of the Tom and Rachel, who lost their lives in the service of the people of Gaza. The exhibition will document the lives of these two outstanding individuals
