Rebuilding Gaza: Six Months On (Trailer)

During the devastating 50-day war in Israel and Gaza this past summer, around 18,000 homes in Gaza were destroyed or severely damaged, leaving around 120,000 residents homeless. Now, with trouble in neighboring Sinai and infighting between Palestinian factions, reconstruction efforts in the beleaguered Gaza Strip are moving slowly. With the UN warning of a growing humanitarian crisis for the people of Gaza, many fear that another armed conflict is imminent. Six months after the end of fighting, VICE News returns to the region to investigate the progress on reconstruction.

There’s also a report on a big milestone for Photoshop in this week’s Small Business Trends news and information roundup.

Copenhagen Killings: The Aftermath

On February 14, a gunman opened fire on a café in Copenhagen, killing one man and injuring three police officers. The café was hosting a debate on free speech — featuring the controversial cartoonist Lars Vilks, famous for his 2007 drawing of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad as a dog. Hours later, the shooter, who had fled the scene of the crime, reappeared outside of Denmark’s central synagogue, where he shot and killed a Jewish volunteer guard and wounded two more police officers. The shooter again fled the scene, sparking a citywide manhunt. Around 5am on February 15, the suspected gunman was located by police and shot dead. He was soon identified as Omar el-Hussein, a 22-year-old Danish-born Muslim man, who had just been released from jail. Authorities suspect Hussein may have been radicalized by supporters of the Islamic State militant group while in prison. Hours later, VICE News landed in Copenhagen to investigate the aftermath of the attacks. We attended a nighttime rally of the anti-Islam group PEGIDA and met with Denmark’s Chief Rabbi and a representative from pan-Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, who said that Islamophobia is rising in the Danish capital.

Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash (Full Length)

Coal ash, which contains many of the world’s worst carcinogens, is what’s left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people’s backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. VICE News travels across the US to meet the people and visit the areas most affected by this toxic waste stream. Since coal production is predicted to remain steady for the next few decades, coal ash will be a problem that will affect the US for years to come.
