I'm very grateful to my supporters, support which has enabled me to report from numerous countries/regions over the years.
I began in occupied Palestine, in 2007, with no support and only the determination to see with my own eyes how Palestinians are oppressed. Going to and spending 8 months in the West Bank of occupied Palestine (https://opt2007.wordpress.com/category/my-entries-from-occupied-palestine-apr-dec-2007/ ) and inevitably living in Gaza for several years (https://ingaza.wordpress.com/interviews-and-talks-on-palestine/interviews/ ) was the beginning of my political awakening.

De-arresting a Bil'in villager, pursued by Israel in its attempt to quash popular resistance. On this occasion, I had a pile of people on top of me, was kicked in the head by an Israeli soldier, and had tear gas chucked at the pile of us.
