Gaza Strip Protests October 2015
One thing we code for when analysing representations of protest is whether violence is involved, and on whose part. Sadly, recent events in Gaza have served as a reminder of the utility of this coding category, with more Palestinians killed and injured in protests on the Gaza Strip. The fact that the media are a key dimension of the conflict was inadvertently highlighted when a Palestinian man disguised himself as a journalist, with the word ‘Press’ emblazoned on his T-shirt, was shot dead after police say he stabbed a soldier.
