The connection between running and human rights

July 7, 2013. Sari Bashi, Gisha executive director, was interviewed in +972 Magazine about the connection between public discourse on Gaza, movement restrictions placed on Palestinians and marathon running.

From the interview:
It gave me an opportunity to see how the Israeli legal system addresses claims by Palestinians, which was a really good background for founding Gisha. We started as an organization that provides legal assistance on freedom of movement to Palestinians from Gaza, but because I knew from the court how limited the legal system could be we also developed public advocacy tools, which we use in combination with legal advocacy.
