Episode Description:

On December 31st social activists from the central and eastern Maine areas gathered at Castonguay Square in Waterville to show their solidarity with the people of Gaza to have the year-long blockade lifted. Key note speaker, Desiree Dow of Southwest Harbor and partner of film maker, Tom Jackson, delivered a report directly from Gaza. Tom Jackson ("Greetings From Missile Street" , "Defending the Commons" and other eye-opening films) was in Gaza teaching a digital video course to young Gazans so they might record the human rights violations currently being suffered by the Gazan people. Following the street play, "Seven Jewish Children", by British playwright, Caryl Churchill, there were speakers who described the failure of the American mainstream media to report events in Gaza. As the snow storm moved in, the group marched to Congressman Mike Michaud's office to make him aware of this failure and the failure of Congress to act.
