Gaza: 39 straight Fridays of protests

For 39 consecutive weeks, Palestinians have protested near the Israel-Gaza buffer zone as part of the Great March of Return movement.

Demonstrators, who launched the protests on March 30, are calling for the right of return for Palestinian refugees, under the United Nations Resolution 194, and demanding an end to the 12-year Israeli blockade.

Since the rallies first began, more than 215 Palestinians have been killed and at least 18,000 others injured by Israeli forces.

In the season finale of The Take, host Imtiaz Tyab speaks to journalist Stefanie Dekker, who has been covering the protests since the beginning.
