Since Friday the 30th of March 2018 Israel has killed over 30 and injured more than 1500 Palestinians who have been participating in a nonviolent protest called the #GreatReturnMarch - a 6 week series of demonstrations taking place, primarily every Friday, along the border of Gaza and Israel. Over 75% of the Palestinian people living in Gaza are refugees whose homes are in Israel. The UN has demanded that Israel allow the Palestinians refugees to return but Israel has refused.
