British street artist Banksy visits Gaza

February 26, 2015 at 1:02 pm

British graffiti artist Banksy released a short video on his website yesterday showing his recent trip to the Gaza Strip.

In the video, Banksy outlines the hardships faced by Palestinians living under occupation in the Strip especially following last summer’s Israeli war which killed more than 2,200 people, mainly civilians.

It ends with a poignant reminder: “If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful – we don’t remain neutral.”
