Some transparency in the life of Gaza

The Gaza based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights have put out two press releases over the last days (here and here) condemning the Hamas government’s suppression of free speech and association in the Strip.

This shows once again that Gaza isn’t a true police state (despite profound problems with accountability and democracy) but a place where voices of dissent can at least marginally operate.

Hamas should respect the organisation’s position.
