While this video was made in 2009, the content is still very relevant today. Chris Hedges makes a very moving speech about the attack on Gaza by the Israeli military and the implications of this attack.
The video contains excerpts of a speech by Chris Hedges, American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, war correspondent and activist, when he spoke at the Revolution Books Town Hall Meeting at Ethical Culture Society on January 13, 2009.
In the speech he condemns the complicity of the USA in what he calls Israel's murderous destruction and genocide of the innocent men, women and children of Gaza and the West Bank.
While admitting that the US military has also killed children and civilians on an even bigger scale in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hedges discusses the situation with the Gaza strip and its occupants.
Hedges says that this is not a war. He says it is murder and the final step in the total occupation of Palestine.
The video was dedicated to the children of Gaza and is a view of the current situation from another side.
