The man behind Gaza’s Great March of Return | Witness Documentary

“What would happen if thousands of Gazans, most of them refugees, attempted to peacefully cross the fence that separates them from their ancestral lands?” That was Ahmed Abu Artema’s Facebook statement, the rallying cry that launched the “Great March of Return” protests in 2018.

Frustrated with the restrictions, walls and borders that surround Gaza, the poet decided to advocate for change. Ahmed wanted to break the more than 10-year-old siege in Gaza through non-violent means with Palestinians from all factions.

Ahmed dreams of a world with no borders. He wants to be free to leave the Gaza Strip. The marches he organises were a cry for help .”Our hardships induced this scream for life. The March of Return is a scream for life so that we may leave the walls of our prison.”
