Called Canada’s Rachel Corrie, Eva Bartlett is an activist and journalist living in Gaza since 2008. Her eyewitness accounts from Occupied Palestine have been published in the Electronic Intifada, Inter Press Service, Countercurrents and her own blog. As a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement, Eva accompanied Gaza farmers and fishers under threat of harassment and sniper fire from Israeli forces. Eva rode with medics in their ambulances during Operation Cast Lead, Israel’s devastating assault on Gaza in 2008-2009 which killed 1500 Palestinians, and she documented the 2012 attacks from a central Gaza Strip hospital.
