Keith Hammond, a UCU member who lectures at Glasgow University, is currently in Gaza. He is working with Gazan colleagues on a project concerned with building lifelong learning. However, it is difficult to do learning of any kind in Gaza while schools and universities are being bombed; and people’s lives in Gaza are often not very long.
I am using this blog to post Keith’s e-mails along with other eye witness reports from Gaza which I believe are reliable. The BBC and other media outlets are totally biased towards the Israel government narrative and are ignoring the stories of Palestinian civilians. This is just one small attempt to give them a voice.
The owner of this blog is Dr. Sue Blackwell, based in Birmingham UK. Like Keith I am a member of BRICUP, the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine.
