On December 27, 2008 the Israeli military launched a wave of air strikes against the Gaza Strip. They followed this with an invasion of ground troops one week later. The offensive caused horrific damage to the civilian population and the infrastructure that supports it. Norman Finkelstein, a world-renowned scholar of the Israeli-Palestine conflict, has just published a new book entitled This Time We Went Too Far and now is going on tour. In an effort to expose the truth about Gaza, he is teaming up with rap musicians Lowkey and Shadia Mansour, as well as activist Jody McIntyre, to tell the world what really happened. Check out our new trailer below, featuring footage from their recent stop in Chicago. The group will come to New York City for an event on the evening of May 6th at The Griffin, 50 Gansevoort Street.
