‘End the Blockade’

“[UNRWA spokesperson Chris] Gunness also highlighted the need for an end to the blockade of the Gaza Strip in order to allow the region recover from the current crisis.
‘When all this is over, the world community needs to bring effective pressure to end the blockade of Gaza,’ he said.”

“Shocking footage of Australian cattle being abused in the Gaza Strip should re-ignite a national debate on the legitimacy of the live export trade. [..]
Filmed by civilians during the Festival of Sacrifice in October, this footage shows cattle being terrorised by crowds and tortured in streets and makeshift slaughterhouses — all in breach of Australia’s live export regulations.”
