Our euronews correspondent Joanna Gill was in the Gaza Strip to speak to people suffering as a result of the Israeli blockade. Two mothers and a farmer describe a harsh daily reality: poverty, child labour, the electricity crisis and an uncertain future. All are now calling for an end to the decade-long blockade imposed after the Palestinian movement Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.
