Kiwi in Gaza during November attacks returns to speak on the conflict

Kiwi Roger Fowler who was in Gaza while Israeli bombs dropped in November, will speak about the attacks and occupation at Auckland University on Thursday.

While he was there Israel inflicted eight days of intense bombardment on the Gaza Strip, killing 170 people, mainly civilians including elderly and children. Mr Fowler reported on the military blitz from Gaza city.

In the presentation, Roger will speak of his experiences. He will be joined by participants of the Kia Ora Gaza aid convoy in June, Tali Williams and Hone Fowler.

DATE: Thursday 13 December

TIME: 6pm to 7.30pm

VENUE: The University of Auckland Business School, Cease Room 1, Level 0
