'Banksy in Gaza'
(excerpt from '8 Birthdays and
3 Wars') 01/07/2015 Newstalk 106-108
In the Summer of 2014 Israel and Hamas went to war. After 50 days,
439 children were amongst the 2000 dead civilians in the Gaza Strip.
In an excerpt from '8
Birthdays, 3 Wars' Newstalk presenter
Chris Donoghue reports
from Gaza on the daily struggle to live, the work of UNICEF and
the hopes and fears for the future of an 8-year-old Gazan who has
already seen 3 wars, and talks to Paul
Gough about the overnight appearance of
a unique Mural of a kitten by the artist, 'Banksy',
the cultural and financial issues arising for the man upon whose
wall it appears, and the feelings of the local people who have seen
it and live with it.
For the 1.8 million Gazan people, 1 million of whom are children,
tensions remain high in 2015. Their home place is surrounded by
25 meter walls and an army on one side, and by Israeli gun boats
at sea on the other.
