A recording of the first in a series of monthly phone conference calls with people from Gaza and/or experts on Gaza. Our first call, on Thursday, March 18, featured Sami Abdel Shafi, an independent political analyst in Gaza, and Cindy and Craig Corrie. The Corrie's daughter, Rachel, was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in 2005 as she tried to protect a Palestinian home from demolition. They joined us from Haifa where they were participating in the hearing of their civil suit against the Government of Israel. Questions were submitted by participants in the call.
