// Entry #7
Virtually every street in Gaza is lined with beautiful graffiti, much of which directly references the occupation with an empowering phrase, a short prayer in honor of a shaheed, or a mural of a heroic figure involved in the struggle for Palestinian self-sovereignty. This is one of the latest pieces, drawn in the same neighborhood as the busy al-Quds Hospital, the United Nations’ Gaza headquarters, and the site of some of the first buildings to be hit by heavy shelling in the 2008-2009 invasion.
There are conflicting reports on how exactly he was murdered. Word on the street varies depending on the source’s political allegiance. Regardless, the entire population of Gaza continues to mourn the death of one of their own.
In commemoration of Vittorio Arrigoni, 1975 to 2011, who was murdered championing the Palestinian cause.
