A journalist’s memoir of covering the Great March of Return

In this article I’m going to reflect on what it has meant to cover the Great March of Return for the last year as a journalist, and not as much my experience as a young Palestinian refugee living in one of the refugee camps in Gaza Strip after the Israeli Haganah gangs expelled my family in 1948 from my occupied city of Ashkelon.

This weekend is the first anniversary of the ongoing Great March of Return; which is considered the longest public peaceful demonstration the Palestinian people have been for decades.

After covering nearly 50 Fridays over the past year, I can’t be more grateful that I’m still alive and did not suffer serious injury.
