“Apocalyptic!” That’s how the Special Rapporteurs of the United Nations are describing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Two and a half months into the war, the health system has collapsed completely. People are literally starving and communicable diseases are rampant. Humanitarian agencies are describing the situation as the worst they’ve ever seen.

Fortunately, resistance to the war is growing the world over. People are clamoring for an urgent ceasefire and in the diplomatic arena, including the United Nations General Assembly, Israel and the United States are increasingly isolated.

All over the world, individuals and organizations want to express their solidarity with Palestine.

Health and health care are a human right and should be restored.

We want to discuss what we can do to support the people of Palestine and, in particular, Gaza, in their struggle for health. We will hear from:

  • Dr. Mustafa Barghouti: A member of the Palestinian Legislative Council
  • Dr. Mads Gilbert: Norwegian physician and solidarity activist
  • Fiona Ben Chekroun: Europe coordinator for BDS campaigns and BDS National Committee member
