Kiwi In Gaza Helping To Inform The World About Israel’s Invasion

Roger Fowler, who lives in South Auckland, has been in Gaza for some days on a fact finding mission for Kia Ora Gaza.

He has been caught up in a full-scale Israeli invasion of the besieged Palestinian enclave.

“Roger is helping UK film-maker Harry Fear operate a makeshift studio in the middle of Gaza City to get a live broadcast about Israel’s invasion out to the world,” reported Grant Morgan, the chair of Kia Ora Gaza.

Roger will be happy to talk with the NZ media about what is happening on the ground, and how he and other Kiwis in Gaza are coping.
