In the closing week of 2009, Cultures of Resistance took part in the Gaza Freedom March. The demonstration was organized by the International Coalition to End the Illegal Siege of Gaza to mark the one-year anniversary of Israel’s attack on the territory. The Freedom March brought more than 1,300 protesters from more than 43 countries to Egypt’s border with Gaza. While the Egyptian government allowed only a small delegation to cross into Gaza, the Coalition nevertheless staged high-profile, nonviolent actions at the French embassy and United Nations offices in Cairo, in concert with other demonstrations in Israel and in cities around the globe. Cultures of Resistance was on hand to document the demonstrations.
